Family Day at Outer Island

Capture small invasive crabs, observe herons and cormorants with binoculars, drag a net to collect small bait fish and algae, become a marine citizen scientist…measure the salt and oxygen in the water. Have fun discovering the island Refuge in Stony Creek CT: learn its history. Bring a picnic; choose a glacial rock for your spot.
