Celebrate the end of the Wetlab season with our River Project team and bid farewell to the wonderful wildlife that served as marine ambassadors this year.

The Wetlab is a research aquarium that houses dozens of species of fish and invertebrates all caught within the Park as part of our ongoing Fish Ecology Survey. During the season, it features a rotating exhibit of animals that are released regularly to ensure that their behaviors are minimally impacted.

Join our River Project during Release of the Fishes from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Wetlab, located on the Pier 40 South Walkway. We will be offering light refreshments and a wide range of activities for all ages. At the event you can:

  • Help return our fish residents to the Hudson River as we are getting ready to close the Wetlab for the season
  • Enjoy kid-friendly crafts and activities that teach about local wildlife
  • Learn about the Park’s ongoing research and education initiatives from our River Project team
