In Summer 2008, EHS staff worked with the Recreation Department to share information about our programs and the work we do with Oneida youth. Kids learned about healthy wetlands & waterways, and many other things. To learn a little more about what the EHS staff shared with the kids, check this out: Summer Program 2008.
This fall and winter our staff has been working with the Oneida Adventure and Experiential Department to teach kids at the Turtle School about watersheds, pollution, and our impact on our water resources.
