Green Girls

Our innovative program inspires early adolescent girls to excel as environmental scientists and stewards of New York City’s precious natural resources. We take middle school students on outdoor adventures in parks and along waterways after school and during the summer. Whether bird-watching, canoeing or conducting science projects, Green Girls develop a new understanding of natural ecosystems for girls, discover how they can create positive change within their environment, and learn about future careers in the sciences.
