FLH Students Partner Full-Time with Rocking the Boat

posted Jun 6, 2016, 10:57 AM by Alison Gazarek
Thanks to a special GE Skills Grant we received last Fall, we were able to cover the cost of sending 40 of our 9th and 10th grade students to Rocking the Boat every week for a full year! 

"During the fall, Public Programs Director Ryan McCormick and Assistant Public Programs Director (and Rocking the Boat alumna) Jasmine Benitez provided participants with a comprehensive introduction to the Bronx River. With the start of the spring semester earlier this month, the kids are starting to carry out two hands-on monitoring projects—building nesting boxes for tree swallows in Soundview Park and monitoring American eels—much like students in the afterschool program".
