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.

See nesting peregrine falcons, osprey, egrets, heron, ibis and many other species and explore the backwaters of te bay while enjoying a beautiful sunset highlighting the New York City skyline.
This ecology tour is in partnership with Gateway National Recreation Area.
