CONEY ISLAND - A group of about 30 middle school girls in Brooklyn are getting a hands on experience while learning about the environment around them.

For an extensive three weeks, five days a week, they are exploring different areas of their community in Coney Island. Recently, they studied the water quality near Kaiser Park, and the impacts of pollution to their community.

Ianna Hayes says after searching the water they've learned to take action because the water is clean enough to swim in, but the beach itself isn't too clean.

The girls also had a chance to help clean up some areas.

"I've always sat down and watched, but I'm actually getting up and doing stuff to help out," says Angelica Chery.
