Water Ecology & Engineering Field Trips
NYC H2O wrapped up our Fall season of Water Ecology & Engineering Field Trips on December 7. We provided 71 field trips reaching nearly 2,000 students.
Since starting our program in 2014, NYC H2O has taken over 17,500 students on free outdoor field trips, making a difference in the lives of New York City students who learn about protecting their city’s water ecology and systems at a time of increasing climate change.
Our STEM education programs provide a scientific and historical understanding of New York City’s water system and infrastructure through field trips designed to meet and exceed New York City and State curricular standards. We engage students of all abilities in grades 2 – 12 by introducing them to inspiring water infrastructure sites and wetlands in the five boroughs:
Ridgewood Reservoir (Queens / Brooklyn)
Baisley Pond (Queens)
Central Park Reservoir (Manhattan)
Jerome Park Reservoir (Bronx)
Silver Lake (Staten Island)
High Bridge (Manhattan / Bronx)
Lemon Creek (Staten Island)
Plumb Beach (Brooklyn)
