Next Wave NY
From April through October, Blue Ocean’s partnership with the Long Island Aquarium brings over 15,000 students, teachers, and other participants down the Peconic River into the Peconic Estuary.
Our educators’ on-board and in-the-water program introduces the complex web of life in the estuary and salt marshes through hands-on investigation, close-up observation, fish seining and guided walks. Blue Ocean equips teachers with materials before and after school field trips so that students make the most of their new knowledge.
Next Wave NY is also an outstanding opportunity for young interns. These scientists-in-training gain valuable experience working in the estuarine environment, and their interaction with the public and students teaches important communication skills.
