Project Title & Description
American Littoral Society FFY09-EE
American Littoral Society will expand its coastal environmental education programming to provide field-based learning experiences to an additional 440 students in Camden, Atlantic City, Asbury Park and Keansburg, New Jersey. The twelve-week after-school coastal environmental enrichment program, coastal environmental science immersion weekend and dune restoration programs target middle and high schools students from urban coastal areas. The American Littoral Society program fills a gap in the students' environmental science programs and will enable traditionally underserved students in these communities to become better stewards of their coastal ecosystems.
