Through the Green Girls Summer Institute, middle school girls can take part in five weeks of fun-filled outdoor adventure. Green Girls travel across the five boroughs to study NYC’s urban forests, encouraging them to create positive change in the natural environment and learn about future science careers. Whether bird-watching, canoeing, or conducting science projects, participants develop a new understanding of the City’s natural ecosystems.
