CUNY students clean up!

Professor Kathleen from CUNY brings her oceanography students out to Rocky Point Marsh to make their own observations of the local ecology. We then engage in a good old-fashioned clean up.

This is the first time I've seen a sea star on this shoreline.

Professor Kathleen and Tony Luscombe, NPS Biological Technician meet with the students afterwards.
