EnviroMedia Mobile from the Urban Divers

Just got an email from the Urban Divers about their big new educational toy (representing the culmination of years of planning and work), an “ENVIROMEDIA MOBILE”—a traveling urban nature and maritime museum on wheels.  They describe it as…

a unique learning and cultural tool to help increase environmental literacy, youth development and maritime cultural enrichment in our community, in our schools, on the waterfront in NYC.

The Divers will unveil the “mobile” on October 21st, 2:00pm to 4:00pm, at Brooklyn Borough Hall Plaza Park.  If you don’t know about UD and the work they do on the New York Waterfront, check out their official website.  They ask that you RSVP for the unveiling, so send me an email- jon@dtetc.org- for details.
