GNC Receives Funding From Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy for their Bronx River Study Program
The Greenburgh Nature Center is pleased to announce that the Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy (BRPRC) has donated $1500 in funding for the annual Bronx River Study Program. This program is coordinated with Maria Decandia, a 7th grade science teacher at Edgemont Middle/High School. As part of this program, a Greenburgh Nature Center naturalist conducts a physical survey of the Bronx River with Edgemont students at two locations, one by the County Center parking lot and the other by the Scarsdale train station. Detailed worksheets are utilized to collect scientific data. At the end of the study, the students present their data analysis at a forum held at the Greenburgh Nature Center for parents and other interested parties.
The Greenburgh Nature Center has a long standing relationship with the Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy and is very grateful for past support for the American Eel research project and the Bronx River specimen’s tank. The Nature Center is so appreciative of their support for this educational programming too.
The Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy is a member-based non-profit organization which was founded in 1997 and is dedicated to supporting the County of Westchester in its stewardship of the Bronx River Parkway Reservation.
