If you are looking for a great activity to do with your kids in the area this summer, consider looking intoSoundWaters. My boys visited last week and had a wonderful time.
SoundWaters, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1989, is the leading environmental education organization on Long Island Sound. Programs take place at the Coastal Education Center in Cove Island Park, in Stamford, Connecticut, on the SoundWaters, an 80 three-masted schooner; at schools, community centers and field sites throughout the region; and at our summer program for children ages 2-14.
The mission of SoundWaters is to educate children and adults about the wonders and beauty of Long Island Sound and its watershed. Through education, SoundWaters provides people with an understanding and awareness of the changes they can make in their lives and communities to restore, protect and preserve Long Island Sound and the Environment.
