Water Ecology & Engineering Field Trips

All 5 NYC Boroughs For School Groups Grades 2-12

NYC H2O offers free Water Engineering and Ecology Field Trips in all 5 boroughs.
Our field trip sites are: Central Park Reservoir, Manhattan Silver Lake Reservoir, Staten
Island Baisley Pond, Queens Lemon Creek, Staten Island Ridgewood Reservoir, Brooklyn Jerome Park Reservoir, Bronx High Bridge, Bronx & Manhattan Plumb Beach, Brooklyn Reservoirs:  Each reservoir has its own dramatic story.

NYC H2O’s talented team engages students in hands-on outdoor activities that show how reservoirs were constructed for NYC’s water system. Students learn how parks and trees protect reservoirs as part of experiencing these seldom visited, public ‘natural’ treasures.

Wetlands: NYC H2O’s field trips to Lemon Creek, Staten Island, and Plumb Beach, Brooklyn, give students the opportunity to explore fresh and salt water wetlands and discover the crucial role these environments play in supporting harbor ecology and mitigating storm surges. The field trips are free; reservations require a $50 deposit, refunded once a class goes on a field trip. Reserve your school’s field trip.

This program is sponsored in part by NYC DEP, Catskill Watershed Corporation, Aggreko,
Turtle & Hughes, United Electric Power and Skanska.
