CATCH-AND-RELEASE FISHING 10am-2pm Join BPCPC’s Master Anglers and drop a line for some of the 30-plus species of fish that live in New York Bay (the Hudson River’s estuary). During GO FISH, barbless hooks minimize injuries to both fish and participants. Fish are placed in saltwater tanks for observation and identification before being released back into the Hudson. Live demonstrations and displays teach fish anatomy and heighten awareness of the ecology, flourishing marine life and current state of good health of the Hudson River and its estuary. Rods, reels and bait are provided for those who don’t bring their own. ART PROJECTS 11am-2pm Drop in on fish-related art projects. BIRD WATCHING 11am Search with an experienced birder for species that live in or migrate through BPC Parks. Binoculars available to borrow. FAMILY PERFORMANCE 12:30pm Michael Hill & Friends serenade anglers with the fishing blues.
