Summer 2016 events being planned

BaySave will help produce a series of public events this coming season focused on the fisheries of the Delaware River and Bay. The program is still unnamed at this point as we gather ideas. One series of events will be held at Money Island Marina, Newport NJ and the other will be at still unidentified locations up the Delaware River.  Delaware River Greenway Partnership is expected to be involved in the production of events along the Delaware River.

The general idea is to combine some fun outdoor activity with a short lecture and food where feasible. The marina events focus on a BBQ to draw attendance and the river events will emphasize the lecture. We expect that all events will be free and open to the public but sponsorship an donations will be solicited to support the programs.

The North American Native Fishes Association may offer to help with speakers’ costs.

WE NEED SPONSORS FOR FOOD THAT RUNS $200-$300 PER EVENT.

This blog post is meant to help develop ideas and gather input. At this point, all details are just suggested at this point and subject to change. If you have ideas for a theme, speaker, topic or sponsor then please contact Tony Novak at 856-723-0294 (cell) or email onlineadviser@live.com.
