You are invited to join us on a Raritan River boat trip on the RV Rutgers. The boat trip will be Friday October 18th from 1:30-4 pm. This is a rare opportunity to see the Lower Raritan from the water!
The RV Rutgers is a 20 passenger landing craft that can navigate the lower Raritan River and estuary. The R/V Rutgers is operated by the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences. See here for more information on the boat.
On this tour we will identify our pathogens monitoring locations, highlight significant landmarks, and bring out binoculars for bird watching. We will likely get a chance to see eagles, osprey, cormorants, kingfishers, herons, egrets, and more.
This tour is hosted by the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership, Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County, and Rutgers, Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources.
Please note we have a limited number of seats – this is a first come first served trip!
Our trip will depart from the Morgan Marina in Sayreville: 8000 Gondek Dr, Parlin, NJ 08859
