Councilwoman Bonner Meets with Shoreham Wading River Students Before Sailing Trip in the LI Sound

Town Seal

Farmingville, NY – On June 18, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (back row, third from left) was on board the 80 ft. schooner, “SoundWaters,” at the Town of Brookhaven’s Port Jefferson Marina to wish a “bon voyage” to Shoreham Wading River 5th graders prior to their Long Island Sound “learning cruise.” The Councilwoman secured the docking rights at the marina and spoke with the students before their trip. During the cruise, students learned about the local habitat, biodiversity and ecology of the Sound and helped sail the ship by raising and lowering the sails. The trip lasted more than two hours and the children came away with a better understanding of the body of water that borders Brookhaven’s north shore.

Councilwoman Bonner said, “Sailing is a great way for children to learn about the natural beauty of the Long Island Sound. After a difficult school year, it was great to see the smiles of excitement as the children shoved off on such a beautiful day. I wish them all a happy, fun-filled summer and good luck in middle school.”
