River Life, with Beach Art! Free Program

  • Nyack Beach State Park 698 North Broadway Nyack, NY, 10960 United States (map)

We are excited to announce a new series of art and science programs in your favorite parks, sponsored by the Palisades Parks Conservancy!

The first program, "Our Tidal River," will be a mix between a time to relax and picnic on the beach, enjoy the view, and experience the river through science and art activities.

Participants will be guided in catching fish and aquatic life with a seine net and waders. They will have an opportunity to observe and become more familiar with the fish and critters before releasing them back to the river.

At the art station, folks will be invited to study the forms of the fish that have been caught, and to paint with pigments made from the stones and Haverstraw brick pieces found and collected from the beach. 

All ages welcome!
