American eels are migratory fish that hatch in the Atlantic Ocean and enter rivers as tiny “glass eels” each spring.
Join a team of scientists, students, and volunteers as we collect glass eels using a net in Furnace Brook, a Hudson River tributary. Juvenile fish are counted, weighed, and released to better habitat upstream, often above dams. Come learn about the project, its goals, and what it takes to volunteer.
Teatown manages the Furnace Brook site for the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
