NYS DEC Great Hudson River Fish Count
Lamont’s Hudson River Field Station participated in the 10th annual Great Hudson River Fish Count hosted by the NYS DEC. During the fish count, visitors helped us collect fish using seine nets. Seining involves pulling a net through the water and checking out the fish, crabs, and other River life caught in its mesh. We had a blast exploring all the life that lives beneath the surface of the Hudson!

April is Earth Month!
Columbia University’s Earth Institute State of the Planet Blog posted a new Earth Day article entitled“How You Can Help Restore Nature on Earth”. The article includes an action item list of 10 things that YOU can do to get involved in eco-restoration. Margie Turrin, Director of Educational Field Programs, states that it is important to “be cognizant about the changes that we have created, and how we can make a really big difference through being aware and trying to correct some of these things with projects that will help to improve their functionality.”
