Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays

World Fish Migration Day and Earth Day

April 21, 2018 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Woodhull Dam
300 Center Dr S
Riverhead, NY 11901

Join the Peconic Estuary Program for World Fish Migration Day to celebrate the spring migration of alewife (also known as river herring).  We will be set up at Woodhull Dam to meet with alewife experts, observe and practice techniques that scientists use to monitor alewife, and learn about their life history and importance to Long Island through educational displays. This will be a fun, family-friendly event. Join us anytime between 10am – 12pm.  Please contact to let us know you’ll be there!

And in honor of Earth Day happening the same weekend, we will start a cleanup towards the end of our time at the dam.  Then for those who would like to continue exploring alewife habitat, we will continue cleaning up at the site of our fish passage at Grangebel Park from 12-1pm.

Directions: Park under the solar panels at the Suffolk County offices (310 Center Drive S) and walk across Center Drive (route 51). You will see a small wooden fence. To the right of the fence you will see a clearing in the woods where there is a trail to the dam.  We will be set up along this trail.
