FW: Subway Reefs Talk - This Friday 7pm

 




NYC H2O logo



 Friday November 14 at 7pm 

Hunter College 

   

In 2001 the MTA retired its fleet of Redbird subway cars. It gave the trains to states on the Atlantic coast to serve as artificial reefs for fish. The program has been successful in supporting the web of undersea life and attracts game fish, which in turn draws sport fishermen and scuba divers to the reefs. New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia have "reefed" about 1,000 subway cars in all from the MTA.  

 

Come hear Bob Martore, the Artificial Reef Manager from South Carolina's Department of Natural Resources, explain how subway cars help provide homes for marine life.

 

The talk will be held in room 714 of the Hunter College West building. Entrance is at 68th Street and Lexington Avenue. Tickets are free but please RSVP
