Raised Flower Beds

We would like to thank the Brookhaven Highway Department for working with us to bring raised flower beds to the Holtsville Ecology Site. By having these flowerbeds at the Ecology Site, children of all abilities will be able to engage in horticultural activities and learn about plant life sustainability. We also want to thank Dew Drop Inn, The Music Academy for Special Learners, Think BIG Theater Arts and Special Needs Circle of Friends, Inc for sponsoring these flower beds. View photos.
