Seal Exploration at Orchard Beach Nature Center

Who knew you can see wild seals off Orchard Beach. This is so cool that I plan on doing this with the girls this Saturday.

The City of New York’s Parks & Recreation Committee will be hosting another fabulous and free event this Saturday. Seal Exploration, to be held at the Orchard Beach Nature Center in Pelham Bay Park, aims to teach families all about these aquatic and charming animals. They’ll also take tours around the park to discover other wildlife like falcons, salamanders, and deer. No matter what age, discovering the world around you is always exciting!
