City Parks Foundation Summer Programs
The City Parks Foundation's environmental education programs help students experience the fun of science, while learning about their relationship to the natural world and the ways in which they can protect our natural environment. The Learning Gardens is a science-based experiential program that offers youth the opportunities to understand the importance of urban gardens and healthy food through hands-on lessons in garden maintenance and fun science games and activities. Coastal Classroom invites middle school students to become actively involved in NYC marine ecosystems with hands-on learning along the City's waterfront. Participants learn about water ecology and urban waterfront restoration and preservation, sparking excitement and passion for conserving coasts and waterways. Groups of up to 25 students are invited to register for both of these programs.
