American eel Project

The Rockland County Division of Environmental Resources and the Soil and Water Conservation District, in addition to local watershed groups and educators, work with the NYS DEC to offer the American eel Project at Minisceongo Creek located in West Haverstraw from Mid-March to the end of May.

Volunteers are responsible for counting, weighing, and relocating glass eels caught inside the fyke net. Then Eels are relocated above the nearest barrier to aid in their long journey upstream.
