River Barge Park and Marina
260 Outwater Lane
Carlstadt (Bergen County)
Join the Conservancy’s Stewardship Coordinator, Damon Noe, and New Jersey Chapter trustee and author of “The Nature of the Meadowlands,” Jim Wright, as we explore the thriving marshes of the Hackensack River by pontoon boat.
The morning will begin with Jim’s slide show/Q&A about River Barge Park, the Hackensack River and what we will see on the boat trip. Then, we will head onto the water with staff from the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, experts on the natural and human history of the region, for a leisurely two-hour boat trip. Along the way, we’ll learn about shore birds, salt marshes, Lenape Indians, pirates and history along the banks of the River.
Bring binoculars and a camera; optional brown-bag lunch with Conservancy staff after the boat trip.
