Sherman Creek Project SECYE:Friends of Sherman Creek

Mission: Friends of Sherman Creek is a "friends of a park" group,created for the restoration,preservation, and conservation of the salt marsh-mudflat wetlands of Sherman Creek located on the Harlem River.We want to build a Bilingual Environmental Education Center at Sherman Creek to educate the large hispanic community about the natural wildlife of the Harlem River/NY Harbor Estuary, to create ownership of our parks among the residents of Wahington Heights and Inwood, and to promote alternative careers in Environmental Conservation.We also want public access to the waterfront in order to promote alternative healthy activities such a kayaking, rowing, and sailing.We believe that this Env.Ed Center will also be an effective land use that will boost tourism and economic development to Northern Manhattan.
