This past Saturday (October 8th) members of the Marine Science Club experienced the Nissequogue River by canoeing it's 5.5 miles, from "the bull" to Old Dock Road. Students began their trip from the rivers fresh water source to the Long Island Sound. The estuary that they traveled through, where salt and fresh water meet, was teeming with a rich diversity of life. They encountered great blue herons, swans and two large nesting sites; one for American Egrets and the other for cormorants. The trip ended with a riverside B-B-Q and a collection of local fish for the club's tank. The weather was spectacular and the cheeseburgers were pretty good too!
