Our Ecosystems

At the West Haven Center for Coastal Ecology, we are dedicated to educating our youth to the importance of our ecosystems in West Haven, and how many others throughout the State of Connecticut thrive in the same manner. We delve into the different animal species and plant life that live in these areas and have them question why we have them in the first place. The conservation of our city's eco-systems is critical to understanding who we are.
