Project Title & Description
Environmental Education Program
Two programs focusing on the Bronx and East Rivers will be conducted for high school age students in New York City. Students in the Out-of-School On-Water program meet twice a week for 13 weeks and four days a week for seven weeks during the summer. Students navigate and track water conditions and develop and execute habitat monitoring and restoration projects. In the Community Environmental Program, Rocking the Boat educators work with classroom teachers to develop projects with students combining classroom learning with field experiences on the rivers. Both projects promote environmental stewardship as students are involved in implementing conservation and restoration projects.
