YouthCan Bronx on the River

11_30_08 031

On the last Saturday of November, a contingent of YouthCan Bronx accompanied educator Christine Kola on a short tour of the Bronx River Forest and bagan surveying a site that they will steward. The group is made up of Ms. Kola’s eighth grade students from MS 45 on Lorillard and former students who now attend various high schools in NYC. The crew will work on a variety of tasks including invasives removal, plantings and water quality monitoring. On this blustery day, they took the time to do a quick clean up which will also serve as data for their next visit to guage the amount of trash that builds up in that area over a given period of time.
