The free, hands-on nature program will discover a variety of fish, crabs and other sea creatures as a seine net is pulled through the calm waters of Sandy Hook Bay. Closed-toe shoes are required. Meet on the beach near the park entrance. Parents or guardians are required to stay with and supervise their children. Swimming is not permitted during this weather-dependent event.
