Mission Statement

NYC H2O’s mission is to educate and inspire New York’s citizenry about its incredible water system. We want to create a generation of concerned, educated New Yorkers who conserve and advocate for natural resources as part of their daily lives. We empower citizens including students and teachers to think about the role of water in their lives so that they don’t take water for granted and can knowledgeably be involved with responsible public policy in the future.

Description

Over the last five years we have offered 66 educational programs focused on NYC’s water system and ecology to a combined audience of 2,800 people.

We began offering the Reservoir Tours for School Groups Program in 2014. During the spring and fall, we successfully partnered with 40 schools for 53 tours for students from second grade to high school. We have found that adults and children alike are deeply touched by participating in our activities; resulting teacher interest and word of mouth have rapidly expanded the demand for our school tours. Our goal in 2015 is to offer 80 tours reaching 2,000 students.
