SUBMERGE Marine Science Festival 2021

SUBMERGE celebrates New York City’s coastal waters by bringing marine science to life, and is brought to you by our River Sanctuary experts — HRPK’s River Project.

This year’s festival will showcase dynamic marine environments, estuary wildlife and current science in New York City’s local waters. Featuring both in-person activities and virtual panels, there is something for everyone to enjoy — wherever you are.

Tune in virtually for inspiring daily themes including local wildlife, harbor habitat and River health or register for our in-Park activities and tours. For more information on HRPK’s River Project and our festival partners, click through below!
