THE FRIENDS OF BARNSTABLE HARBOR
YOUTH EDUCATION PROJECT
As a stewardship organization for Barnstable Harbor, we feel that education is an integral component of ensuring that future generations gain knowledge and interest in maintaining a healthy coastal ecosystem and environment, as well as develop a historical perspective with regard to our maritime heritage.
Many children growing up on Cape Cod miss the opportunity to experience the coastal world that is the fundamental difference between seaside and inland communities. With this in mind, we have crafted a Massachusetts STEM curriculum compliant program for 4th grade classes to engage in an “outdoor classroom” experience with Barnstable Harbor Ecotours. We hope that educators will find our Education Project to be an attractive learning experience for their students.
