Overview of Project WHIRL
Project WHIRL is a program, initiated by the CNY Chapter, in which high school students (mentees) learn about the natural environment in the Indian River Watershed from environmental fields professionals and college students (mentors) studying in an environmental science field.
Mentees will conduct field research, identify environmental threats, and implement remediation measures and management plans that benefit the watershed's habitats and communities, and document outcomes.
Mentees will engage in community outreach and education to inspire cross-generational community involvement in stewarding Indian River Watershed.
