What Lives in the River
9-11am Saturday, September 16, 2017
All ages are invited to join Narrow River Preservation Association for this hands-on exploration of fish, shellfish, crabs and other inhabitants of Narrow River.
We will use nets large and small to catch river creatures and examine them in touch tanks. Experts and guide books will be on hand to make identifications. Come learn about the importance of estuaries as nurseries for fish & shellfish, the fascinating migration of river herring, and the role of river plants in the food web.
Participants are welcome to get into the water, please dress appropriately. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
At Middlebridge Marina, 95 Middlebridge Road, Narragansett, RI (across the street from Narrow River Kayaks).
