Educate. Empower. Act. The mission of Project WET is to reach children, parents, educators and communities of the world with water education. We invite you to join us in educating children about the most precious resource on the planet — water.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) just issued a press release announcing the publication of the Project WET Kids In Discovery (KIDs) activity booklet, Discover the Hudson River. The booklet joins more than 40 other titles in the award-winning KIDs series dedicated to helping children discover the scientific, natural, cultural and historical wonders of their world.
The booklet was a joint venture between the Project WET Foundation, New York State DEC, New York Sea Grant, the New York-New Jersey Harbor Estuary Program, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation.
As New York State DEC Commissioner Grannis noted in the release, "Discover the Hudson River will be a valuable teaching tool for anyone interested in helping our younger generation to better understand the environment of the Hudson through its wildlife, watershed, history and people." He continued, "It's a marvelous example of the positive work that can result from a successful collaboration between public and private entities."
The booklet is available for purchase at http://store.projectwet.org or by calling or emailing the DEC's Bureau of Environmental Education (firstname.lastname@example.org or (518) 402-8043).
