“I Spy” Scavenger Hunt

Located on Sandy Hook, the NJ Sea Grant Consortium conducts marine science research and education. Little skippers can participate in a nautical version of “I Spy Scavenger Hunt” at the show. Kids that complete the Scavenger Hunt can enter to win a fishing or boating related prize. Two winners will be selected at the end of the day on Saturday and Sunday.
