The Long Island Sound environmental advocacy and educational group SoundWater is putting out a call for seasonal help aboard the organziation’s 80’, 3-masted schooner.

Educator/deckhands work with students to set sails, haul in the trawl net and experience the wonders of Long Island Sound. Most floating classrooms are environmental science-based where students examine first hand the rich diversity of life above and below the sea. Other programs focus on the physical sciences to explain how and why a 32-ton steel boat can float. All programs impart a sense of respect for Long Island Sound’s ecosystems, an awareness of human impact upon them, and a challenge to participants to act to preserve the Sound. Programs offered throughout the sailing season.
