SANDY HOOK SALT MARSH TOUR & BEACH DAY
Date: Friday, July 19
Time: 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Ages: 8 through adult
Cost: $45 per person
Meet Senior Park Naturalist Laura Bush at the Arboretum where she will drive you to Sandy Hook in a County van. As a group, we will meet an instructor from NJ Sea Grant Consortium to spend two hours exploring the most productive ecosystem on earth—the salt marsh. We will don waders and use nets to seine for fish, shrimp, and crabs. We will also collect shells and go on a hike in this special environment. After the program, we will have about three hours for lunch and swimming at a guarded beach. Please bring water and wear closed-toed shoes for the salt marsh portion of the program. A changing area and snack stand are available at the beach, but participants can also bring their own food.
