After meeting with the NJ Green Team at Outdoor Nation, Gateway corps members invited them to Sandy Hook for an Environmental Education Day. When word got out that Team Gateway was planning an EE Day, the SCA high school crew from Newark was also interested in participating! About a week before the NJ crews’ arrival, Gateway NPC brainstormed ideas and potential sites for the EE day which became their mid-season, community outreach project. On that day, about 33 SCA leaders and members from Newark and northwestern NJ arrived for the fun, education, and the beach. Team Gateway gave a nature walk at the Holly Forest, the largest of its kind on the East Coast, and a scavenger hunt at Fort Hancock. The visiting crews also played Ninja with prizes for the winners. Afterwards the crews had lunch and went to the beach. It was great but exhausting day, and in the afternoon Gateway returned to work to finish up at Fee Plaza.
