Sweep-oar rowing on the Hudson

To wrap up the EcoLeaders summer environmental education program, Carol Kennedy from the Satellite Academy High School in the Bronx brings her students to the Newburgh Rowing club. A two-hour ride on a train and on a ferry across the Hudson River takes you to the historic town of Newburgh, a place very different from New York City. The urban students learned to use sweep-oar boats and rowed along with more experienced students from the Newburgh Rowing club.
