HarborLAB hosted another Harbor Camp day at Gantry Plaza State Park in Hunters Point with kids from East Harlem. We serve kids from all over NYC, introduced to us Waterfront Alliance and with permission from the New York Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation.
The kids splashed, learned to paddle, and left with copies of children’s environmental literature about saltwater fish and the importance of streams.
A huge thanks to our volunteer team: Tito Alvarado, Patricia Vidals-Aquino, Erik Baard, Irina Elhendy, Rich Furlong, Gil Lopez, Arturo Vicen-Vera, and to Patricia Menje Erickson for lending her van. What fun and camaraderie!
Our final Harbor Camp Day for 2016 will be on Tuesday, August 23. Come help make it a great success! To volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “Harbor Camp at Gantry.”
