The Watershed Forestry Bus Tour Program funds groups that want to experience the NYC watershed and water supply system in person. Any 4th-12th grade classroom, organization, community group or professional organization in NYC or the watershed region is invited to apply for 1 of 4 Bus Tour Options.
This competitive matching grant program awards up to $3,000 for tours in the East or West of Hudson regions of the watershed. Participants learn about the NYC watershed's lands, waters, and people with a special focus on how healthy, well-managed forests work to protect water quality and support the local economy.
