Secret Science Club flows into Hudson River Park’s Wetlab on beautiful Pier 40 to explore mysterious minds. What amazing animals live in NYC’s wildest & wettest ecosystem? And what are they thinking?

Biologists Diana Li and Kelsey Hom dive into the brains & bodies of NYC’s aquatic creatures (squid! toadfish!) at this special Ask a Scientist event.


Before & After the Talks:

  • Get up close and personal with wildlife from NYC’s liquid wilderness. Check out the exhibits & aquariums in the Wetlab, filled with creatures that live right under our noses alongside Wall Street, Tribeca, the West Village and Chelsea.
  • Groove to sea-salty tunes in our “Ebb Tide Lounge”
  • Imbibe thirst-quenching drinks
  • Watch a live dissection
  • Ask a scientist (or two!) about your favorite Hudson River species
