Speaker Series: Creeks as Classrooms – Bridging Education and Local Stewardship

August 19, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Save The Great South Bay, a local 501(c)3 environmental non-profit, invites teachers, curriculum administrators and other educational partners from across the South Shore to discover ways to incorporate our local waterways into the classroom.

From history to data collection, our creeks can serve as an extension of the traditional classroom and a window into the health of the Great South Bay. Today’s students represent the next generation of local stewardship. How better to engage them than with hands on experiences?

Join us via Zoom where our distinguished panelists will discuss how we can bridge education and local stewardship by using creeks and other marine programs within and/or as an extension of our traditional classrooms. A Q&A session follows the discussion.

Registration a must:  https://creeksasclassrooms2022.eventbrite.com

Our distinguished panelists include:

– Melissa Parrott, Pine Barrens Commission, Co-Coordinator, Day In the Life of a River Program

– Lou Siegel, NYS Marine Educators Association, President

– Robert Vasiluth, Eel Grass Restoration Specialist

Danielle Campbell, Investigative Reporter, will act as our moderator.

We encourage all participants to arrive promptly at 8:00 am for the panel discussion followed by audience Q&A.
