Protecting Long Island Sound through education.
We can bring environmental science to life for these students.
For the last 30 years SoundWaters has been working to protect the Long Island Sound through environmental education. Their hands-on, inquiry-based educational programs are aimed at students from pre-kindergarten to college. All of the programs offered allow environmental sciences to come to life, while amplifying the state mandated science curriculum.
While many students and local residents may not be aware of it, the Long Island Sound Watershed is one of the greatest natural resources in the area. Because so many are ignorant to the importance of this vast area, they don't know how badly it needs to be protected.That’s where SoundWater comes in.
SoundWater’s mission to maintain and preserve the Sound is brought into action
by teaching people about water conservation.
Through this program they learn how to improve, protect and enjoy their environment.
Because water conservation will be a key issue in the coming years, it’s important for children and adults to learn how to respect water and preserve the water quality. Through the SoundWater’s educational programs students are taught how their actions can have lasting long-term effects on their own drinking water, the Sound and the wildlife that depend upon it.
An additional resource that sets SoundWater’s program above the rest is their floating classroom. The SoundWaters Schooner is a unique 80 foot replica of a Chesapeake Bay sharpie schooner, that sails students of all ages out into the Long Island Sound to get hands-on experience that no classroom could replicate.
SoundWaters continues to protect Long Island Sound and its watershed by educating the masses on water conservation and how their actions today affect the wonder of the Long Island Sound tomorrow.
Since 1974 the Clean Water Fund has been working to uphold the Clean Water Act by exposing and opposing any federal action or polluter-friendly court decisions that would harm the nation’s waterways.
For the last 45 years Riverkeeper has been protecting the Hudson River and its tributaries and for the last 20 years they have been protecting the drinking water supply for 9 million New Yorkers.
