Introducing Schooner Kids 2 Coastline

By:

Kids 2 Coastline program just finished its first week! Educators welcomed two groups of kids from New Haven's Boys and Girls club, ages 6-8, and 9-10. Eager to learn and explore the Long Wharf Nature preserve, youth groups did their best to combat the 90 degree heat and they succeeded. Enthusiasm never wavered as they explored the salt marsh, learned about ecosystems, habitats, mollusks, tides, the Long Island Sound, stewardship and more.  We got very lucky and were able to find and hold both a fiddler crab and a horseshoe crab in their natural surroundings.
