Supervisor Romaine said, “I enjoy meeting with students to talk about the environment and how important it is to save what is left for future generations. Thanks to the Central Pine Barrens Commission and the US Fish and Wildlife Services, students learn to appreciate how sensitive the environment is and what we can do to protect and preserve it for years to come”.
During “A Day in the Life,” students and teachers engaged in hands-on science exploration. The purpose is to help students develop an appreciation of Long Island’s river and estuary ecosystems, to collect useful scientific data and allow them to become stewards of water quality and natural resources.
