New Jersey/New York Baykeeper Children’s Open House

Hosting Organization: NY/NJ Baykeeper

Date: March 20, 2019

Learners Impacted: 100

Our Junior Baykeeper Kids Open House featured hands-on learning and oceans of fun! In order to highlight our mission of protecting, preserving and restoring the waterways and habitats of the NY-NJ Harbor Estuary, our focus was all about marine and ocean life. Some of our activities included a touch tank with cool sea critters such as crabs and starfish, oyster shell painting and real-life mermaids!

Our amazing mermaids, “Mermaid Merrow” and “Mermaid Brizo,” held a special Mermaid Meet n’ Greet in the “Mermaid’s Cove”, read ocean-themed stories and answered all kinds of interesting questions about their lives in the ocean!
