Rocking the Boat on Calf Island

Rocking the Boat takes its students from the Bronx, New York City, to a 5-day sailing and rowing trip in the Long Island Sound. I went to observe this trip when students were camping on Calf Island in Connecticut. Urban students experienced tidal wetlands, sandy beaches, mixed forest and coastal shrubland habitats with many birds and interesting geological features. Several of these participants have never camped overnight before.
