Pequenakonck Elementary School’s fourth-graders enjoyed a day of sailing and hands-on activities during a field trip hosted by the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater on Sept. 22.

During the sail, the students helped raise the boat’s sails, assisted in navigating and engaged in learning stations that introduced them to different aspects of the river. They learned about river life, performed water quality tests and studied plankton and other invertebrate life that they caught while fishing from the boat.
