Our Project Stewardship group will be visiting The WaterFront Center (WFC) of Oyster Bay this month. WFC provides access to the waters of Oyster Bay Harbor and Long Island Sound through their marine education programs, recreational and instructional sailing programs, boat rentals, and harbor tours. We will engage in a harbor tour to discover sea life via the National Historic Landmark Oyster Sloop, The Christeen. We will discuss water pollution and take a plankton sample to view under microscopes and conduct a bottom dredge where the young adults can help go through the spoils of what is at the bottom of the harbor. Students will participate in measuring oysters and learn about the lifecycle of oysters and their importance to the estuary. Join us for a wonderful outdoor water adventure using a range of tools to locate, safely capture and analyze our sea life findings! Please arrive at 12:45pm to meet up in front of The WaterFront Center. Wear sneakers and you may bring a bag with water, lunch or snack.
