Join us to find out about the amazing life story of American Eels.  They hatch somewhere between Bermuda and Puerto Rico and start as small as the size of your thumbnail.  Then they take an amazing journey and go through an incredible transformation to arrive at places like the Hudson River in New York State.  Join us with Scientist and Environmental Educator, Chris Bowser, for a special program where you get to ask questions about eels.  Please view these two videos by clicking on each of the titles, prior to signing up and include a question you would like to ask him.  Recommended for kids ages 5 and up.
