Come to Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP) under the Manhattan Bridge at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 15, to watch as a crew of scientists use a 20-foot seining net to catch and release the amazing creatures of the East River (think seahorses, crabs, and more). It's the last public seining of the season, so make sure to RSVP today at firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is free.
This is also the last weekend to go kayaking at BBP. On Saturday at 10:30 a.m., get out to the Boathouse at the Pier 1 Boat Basin and grab a free kayak and life preserver. Children under 18 must have an adult guardian present.
Also on Saturday 1 - 4 p.m., join thousands of other volunteers worldwide for the 27th Annual International Coastal Cleanup. Combat pollution in our waterways and help kids appreciate BBP's unique coastal environment by cleaning up. (Waders will be provided to adult volunteers who choose to enter the water.)
On Saturday and Sunday, Weekend Family Programs takes place at both the north and south end of the park. Kids will explore the wonders of Pier 6 and Main Street with BBP’s playground associates. Each weekend is a new theme.
