High Schoolers clean up McCarren Park

November 7, 2011

Mike Zamm, Director of GrowNYC's Environmental Education program, recently spent 7 weeks putting students at Frances Perkins Academy through a water workshop, teaching kids about hydrology, the water cycle, New York City's watershed, and more.

As a culmination of 7 great weeks of work, students from Frances Perkins mulched 36 trees and planted 13 large trees across the street from their school, in McCarren Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The project will help control storm water runoff and erosion in the Newtown Creek watershed.
