HIGHLANDS, NJ –On July 11, the American Littoral Society will resume its popular Family Night events on Sandy Hook. Families with kids aged 2 to 12 (or even older) will discover the diverse wildlife in their own back yards. After a short introduction on the Society’s “Officer’s Row” front porch, the group will head over to Horseshoe Cove on Sandy Hook bay for a seining adventure. Flanked by experienced Society educators and naturalists, kids will be able to help pull the 40-foot seine net through the shallow waters of the bay and experience the excitement of learning about the fish and other critters they catch. Kids should wear clothes and shoes that can get wet. Participants are also welcome to picnic on the grounds prior to the event.

This season there will be three sessions, Thursday nights July 11 and 25 and August 15, from 6 to 8 pm. The cost is $10 per member family and $25 per non-member family. Space is limited. Call 732-291-0055 to reserve and get more detailed instructions and directions.
