Fishing + Happy Hour on the East River

Fishing + Happy Hour on the East River

Tired of the old noisy after work happy hour? Head down to the Ecology Center to finish off the week with views of the East River as the sun sets and the light turns "magic."

Join us for summer fishing and hanging out on the East River with the Ecology Center. Bait and tackle will be provided (or bring your own) as well as basic fishing instruction. Tickets get you drinks, snacks, and an exclusive look into the Ecology Center's Environmental Learning Center.
