Project Title & Description
Junior Bay Ranger Program
Junior Bay Ranger Program is a career development program to promote environmental stewardship and educate students about the environmental issues related to preserving the ecosystems of Jamaica Bay. Proposed participants are middle grade students from Brooklyn and Queens, New York. The American Littoral Society project is designed to educate students about the wildlife and environments in their community. Young people learn about and develop an interest in caring for the environment. The program also encourages them to pursue environmental careers. Both the development of stewardship skills and the career components of this project will provide benefits to the environment.
