Great Hudson River Estuary Fish Count- Poughkeepsie

Event Date: 
Saturday, August 11, 2018 -
9:00am to 11:00am

We will gather at the south end of Waryas Park and use a 30-foot seine net to catch and identify the fish calling the Hudson home. At this annual event, naturalists at multiple sites along the Hudson catch fish to show visitors the variety of slippery, wriggly and fascinating creatures usually hidden below the river’s surface. The count is organized by the DEC’s Hudson River Estuary Program.

This event is free and open to the public. Parents are requested to stay with their children.
