Gone Fishing...

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Friday May 1, 2015


Dr. Peter Park, Nyack College assistant professor of biology, joined by his colleague Dr. Wenbo Yan, also a biology professor, brought his Fishing Club from the Rockland County campus to Manhattan. Students received instruction in fishing techniques and a brief historical presentation at Battery Park Pier A.

Dr. Park explains, "This fishing event was hosted by the Battery Park City Parks Conservancy, who provided all materials--rods and reels, bait, fish tank, experienced personnel who trained the students and gave an extremely informative presentation about the ecology and history of the Hudson River. They put on this event for us free of charge!" 

Following lunch in the student lounge, the Rockland students toured the Manhattan campus led by Dean Charles Hammond.
