ELIZABETH - New Jersey’s official state ship will be docked along the Hudson River at Liberty State Park for the next few weeks.

The AJ Meerwald is a restored 1928 oyster dredging schooner. The ship is typically stationed in Cumberland County, but will be at Liberty State Park for the next two weeks as part of an effort to teach people about current environmental issues.

Visitors will be able to purchase tickets for a two-hour tour educating them about New Jersey’s history and the oyster industry.

The tour will sail around Governors Island and the Statue of Liberty.
