THE BRONX - Some Bronx grade schoolers are spending a week in nature to learn about the Harlem River.

Canoemobile, a traveling organization that teaches kids how to canoe, teamed up with the Harlem River Working Group for the program at Roberto Clemente State Park.

Organizers say that connecting with the river isn't just beneficial to the city students, but also to the whole community by encouraging people to get outside and be active.

Kids can also enjoy canoe rides and other family activities this Saturday at the annual Harlem River Festival.
