    South Battery and Yankee Pier on Governors Island

    “”Come celebrate Governors Island’s treasures: Common terns and oysters! Common terns have recently colonized several decommissioned piers on the Governors Island waterfront; in 2013, researchers from NYC Audubon and Cornell University counted 181 nests and banded 100 chicks. The Tern Festival will take place from 10am until 4pm as part of Waterfront Alliance’s City of Water Day and will feature speakers, a bird tour of Governors Island, a botany and natural history tour, family activities, and a common tern viewing station on Yankee pier.””
