Project Title & Description
Urban Waters SG - Rocking the Boat
This project is to reduce water pollution by building stewardship among people who live and work along the Bronx River, an environmental justice neighborhood in Bronx, NY. Making use of its fleet of student built wooden boats, the grantee will engage local students and members of the general public in hands-on restoration, monitoring and educational and outreach training around the Bronx River. These activities will raise awareness among the members of the community of the importance to reducing pollution and improving water quality.
