Transform a waterfront with HarborLAB! With the goal of promoting sustainable estuaries, advocating ecological restoration, and helping to conserve NYC’s watershed’s, HarborLAB’s kayaking and canoeing program provides fun service learning opportunities for groups of all ages. Projects include assembling modular docks, planting spartina (cordgrass) and other flora in tidal areas, cleaning up the shoreline, building raised beds for fruit trees, and much more. HarborLAB’s programs are a great way to foster a love for environmental science in young learners. College students in environmental studies-related majors will find the experience both educational and rewarding.
