Coastal Classroom

JULY 9 – AUGUST 9, 2018

City Parks Foundation hosts their Coastal Classroom program for rising 5th-9th grade students at Socrates Sculpture Park’s beach at Hallets Cove. Schools and community-based organizations are invited to schedule four in-depth sessions on marine ecology, waterfront recreational activities, and the importance of preserving the waters surrounding our city. STEM-based, hands-on activities, coupled with recreational opportunities such as rowing and fishing, allow students to experience our waterways as their own backyard and to learn how to protect them. These outdoor field experiences fully engage students in summer fun and learning and help to raise awareness about one of NYC’s most important assets: our waterfront. Program registration is managed by City Parks Foundation, for more info please visit
