The Great Fish Count

Saturday, June 3, 2017
9:00 am - 4:30 pm

From Lemon Creek in Staten Island to the shores of the Bronx River, New York’s waterways are teeming with life — and it’s up to you to find it! Led by top marine scientists and biologists in 17 sites across New York’s five boroughs, Westchester, and New Jersey, the Great Fish Count gives attendees of all ages the chance to strap on a pair of waders, cast a net, and discover the underwater world in their own backyard.

Produced in partnership with the Lamont–Doherty Earth Observatory and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

Supported by the Bezos Family Foundation.
