RWA Hosts USACE Workshop For Local Students
The Rockaway Waterfront Alliance (RWA) hosted a workshop for KAPPA VI and PS 43 students. The Students worked with biologists and engineers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The students learned about the shoreline habitat and touched some of the marine animals that were found on the beach earlier that morning.
The RWA reached out to the USACE in an effort to inform the local community about the dredging that takes place off the Rockaway shorelines and the extent of the work the corps does to keep the waterways clear. This was the first time the USACE visited schools in Rockaway.
