It was a day of wild blueberries, crystal water, and a painterly sky for the 25 kids from Variety Boys and Girls Club who joined HarborLAB on the Neversink Reservoir on Friday, July 29. Our ReservoirLAB program has a dedicated fleet of kayaks and canoes in the Catskills, but we need volunteers to help sustain and grow this wonderful experiential learning opportunity. What a beautiful way to learn about our drinking water resources! HarborLAB is the only organization offering such a comprehensive view of our city’s water systems with boats at both ends — the highlands to the harbor!

Many thanks to the Catskill Watershed Corporation and NYC Department of Environmental Protection for making ReservoirLAB possible. This day was the fruit of volunteer labor, with Thomas Dieter, Patricia Erickson, Dorothy Morehead, Diana Szatkowski, Ray Tan, and Scott Wolpow putting in a very long day of travel, patient teaching, and hard work. Scott and Patricia also visited the kids at the Club in Astoria ahead of the trip upstate, to deliver an orientation and educational talk. THANK YOU!
