Watershed Forestry Bus Tour Program applications are now available for adult and student groups located in NYC or the NYC watersheds.  Grantees receive up to $3,000 for a field trip within the NYC Watershed. The purpose of the Watershed Forestry Bus Tour Program is to help people experience the New York City watershed and drinking water supply system first-hand. Participants learn about the NYC watershed's lands, waters, and people with a special focus on how healthy, well-managed forests work to protect water quality and support the local economy.


Visit the Watershed Agricultural Council's Bus Tour website  for more information and to download an application.
