It’s Your Tern Festival
Saturday, July 16, 10am-4pm
With Waterfront Alliance, Governors Island Alliance, National Park Service, New York Harbor School, Earth Matter NY
Come celebrate Governors Island’s treasures: Common terns and oysters! Common terns, listed as a threatened species in New York State, have nested for several years on three decommissioned piers on Governors Island’s waterfront. The colony has expanded over time and benefited recently from the introduction of oyster shells as a nesting material. Free activities at this year’s festival will include expert bird walks and talks with Gabriel Willow and Annie Barry, displays, and hands-on activities for the whole family.
