Project Title & Description
Atlantic City Historical Waterfront Fndtn. FFY09-EE
The Atlantic City Aquarium, a subdivision of the Atlantic City Historical Waterfront Foundation, will conduct 2 one week programs, Environmental Ambassador Workshops, for 80 middle school students. Students from Boys and Girls Clubs in traditionally underserved communities will take part in educational field experiences at four local ecosystems and teach their peers about them by conducting presentations at school events. They will encourage their peers to organize clean-up events and implement conservation practices. These experiences will foster environmental stewardship among the ambassadors and the students, teachers and community residents they reach.
