Lots of Fish is an Art & Environmental Education Program that is piloting a Green Jobs 4 Youth summer program that includes water related impact projects such as Rain Barrels, Storm Drains, Watershed Murals and sustainable living practices. Educational components include Environmental Ethics and Sustainable Infrastructure in urban and suburban communities. We engage local researchers, educators, artists and public officials. With great success in New Haven we are seeking to expand the program to communities along the Quinnipiac River watershed and beyond.
Let us know you are interested by dropping us a line! We are always looking for more summer volunteers too!
