Posted by Deborah.Walker on Friday May 29, 2015

Nyack College Assistant Professor of biology Dr. Peter Park invites you to participate in a unique volunteer opportunity on Saturday, May 30th as the World Science Festival hosts the NYC GREAT FISH COUNT.

What kind of critters inhabit New York's waters? This is your chance to find out. The Great Fish Count takes place at various locations throughout New York's boroughs (as well as in New Jersey and Yonkers)in search of underwater life.

Dr. Park will co-lead a seining session, with the New Jersey Palisades Interstate Commission at the following site:

Location: Englewood Beach (Bloomers Beach)

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2015

Start Time: 11:00 am

End Time: 1:00 pm

The session is free and open to the public. Leaders will use seine net(s) to catch and identify fish species. Seine net pictured above. 

Participants/volunteers should prepare accordingly (e.g., wear boots, dress for the weather). Fish identification data will be acquired through the use of a standardized key, and data will be recorded and uploaded in real time to synchronize data collection by other researchers at different sites along the Hudson River.

It’s something Nyack College/Alliance Theological Seminary specializes in—equipping and empowering students to discover or develop their call to ministry and church leadership under the mentoring guidance of exceptional professors from the college and seminary.

Recently a cohort of twenty-three women was celebrated at the Third Annual Empower ceremony at Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, NY. This program is the offspring of an articulation agreement between the Metro District of The Christian and Missionary Alliance and Nyack College/ATS. Students who complete the certificate program earn six credits that can be applied to a degree from the college or seminary.
