How do we celebrate a remarkable place?
NYC H2O is devoted to educating schoolchildren about the NYC water system. While pursuing this quest, the organization encountered the Ridgewood Reservoir, an ecological and engineering treasure hiding in plain sight. To establish a citizen’s laboratory at this location, NYC H2O must surmount the following challenges:
- how to inspire discovery about engineering and ecology
- how to revive crumbling infrastructure with new activities
- how to collaborate with government agencies on public land
