Description

Join us for one of our most popular events - a three hour, narrated ecology cruise with noted local naturalists, Don Riepe and Mickey Maxwell Cohen.

Enjoy wine, cheese and fruit aboard the Golden Sunshine with our Jamaica Bay experts and learn about the history and ecology of the bay, a 25,000 acre expanse of salt marshes, intertidal flats and upland forests that is home to 330 species of birds, 107 species of finfish and over 70 species of butterflies.

See nesting peregrine falcons, osprey, egrets, heron, ibis and many other species and explore the backwaters of the bay while enjoying a beautiful sunset highlighting the New York City skyline.

This ecology tour is in partnership with Gateway National Recreation Area.
