Summer 2022 memories…So far!

HarborLAB’s volunteers and students have had a wonderful time introducing public paddlers to New York City’s estuary system this summer. As we look ahead to August through October, here’s a slideshow gallery of some sweet recent moments in Little Bay Park, Randall’s Island Park, Idlewild Park, MacNeil Park, Newtown Creek and Gantry Plaza State Park. Such a wide area of service was made possible by our innovative program, The WAEV (Water Access Electric Vehicles). The WAEV consists of two Nissan LEAF EVs stuffed with Sea Eagle 385ft Fast Track tandem inflatable kayaks, eliminating the need for unsafe and polluting trucks and trailers on our congested city streets and in neighborhoods already impacted by environmental injustice.

We hope you join us for the balance of the season! A huge thanks to our sponsors and the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development for helping to make this all possible!
