Onondaga Earth Corps: Onondaga Earth Corps (OEC) was formed to help youth understand the relationship between people and the urban ecosystem, engage youth in hands-on community and environmental service learning projects, train youth for future jobs and careers in environmental fields, and empower youth by developing their leadership abilities that help them analyze situations, solve problems and implement strategies to improve their communities. The OEC provide peer-to-peer Save the Rain programs, design and construct demonstration projects and assist in the delivery in a number of Save the Rain programs.

Baltimore Woods Nature Center: Through its Nature in the City program, Baltimore Woods delivers three days of Save the Rain curriculum to third grade classes in all 19 elementary school in the City of Syracuse. The program culminates with a field trip to visit a green infrastructure site and sample critters from Furnace Brook. Download the impact report from the 2016-2017 school year (PDF).
