The Harbor as Classroom


The harbor itself is a classroom, creating opportunities for cultivating long term estuary stewardship by engaging Staten Island Schools in waterfront education, restoration and reef building. The New York Harbor School engages middle and high school students in the active restoration and management of New York Harbor, from biological inventory to maritime job training. With the Harbor School, scalable activities can be built into local curriculum - from oyster gardening to reef building to ecological monitoring, that build maritime knowledge and preparedness at the neighborhood scale.
