The POC's Young Eco-'Cuse Explorers teach urban children between the ages 11 - 14  about science, environmnetal justice and urban ecology.  Our program cost $50 per child and registration is the first Saturday in January. The Partnership limits registration to ten children.  For more information or to get on a waiting list, call Aggie at 478-4571.

Registered children commit to one Saturday morning a month and during the summer they enjoy a week in the Adirondacks at a NYS Department of Environmental Conservation environmental education camp. 

The Saturday mornings are devoted to a pre-selected theme.  In 2012 they studied the impact of Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs) and stormwater on our community and how green infrastructure make things better.  In 2013, Saturday mornings will explore ways to impove access to healthy foods, good nutriton and how to grow your own food.
