Ages 10 – 14, March 29 – April 2, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM daily. $300 for 5-day program.

Participants in Fishing the Hudson Eco-Week begin and end each day at Beczak Environmental Education Center, a nature center along the Hudson River in Yonkers, NY. From there, it’s a short walk to Yonkers’ historic pier, a stately, century-old structure that is in daily use by New York Water Taxi and commercial tugboats. There, children and educators will board Island Current II, a 50’ United States Coast Guard certified fishing vessel that’s fully equipped with fishing gear, safety equipment, heated cabin and head (toilet) and the latest navigational tools.
