Welcome from our Hosts

Join us for a historic first as NEERS heads to Brooklyn College, home to two former NEERS Presidents, for the first time. Sitting at the mouth of the Hudson River Estuary, Brooklyn, NY hosts diverse waterfront communities and environments from Greenpoint along the East River to Canarsie on the northern shore of Jamaica Bay. Learn about estuarine research and management in the heavily urbanized waterways of New York City, explore the culture of Brooklyn and meet new colleagues from the wealth of academic institutions, government agencies and non-governmental organizations from the Big Apple.
