Coastal Classroom

Teens can “get their feet wet” in some of New York’s coastal hot spots while studying New York City’s dynamic aquatic ecosystem.

Situated within the Long Island Sound watershed at Kaiser Park in Coney Island and Hallet’s Cove in Long Island City, participants delve into New York City’s waterfront and explore the world beneath the waves through hands-on programming. See the present state of our water resources and get a glimpse into the challenges of future preservation efforts.
