Successful Coastal Steward Long Island Field Trip

Monday, June 13 The Deer Park High School Life Skills class took a field trip to the Marine Environmental Stewardship Center (MESC) at Cedar Beach in Mount Sinai for a fun and enlightening day of marine education, led by members of the non-profit organization Coastal Steward Long Island (CSLI). The class took part in many of the education programs offered by CSLI, including discovering/identifying marine organisms on the beach, using seine nets to collect and observe ocean life, touring the shellfish hatchery and the MESC, interacting with the MESC’s touch tank, and taking a nature walk.

Deer Park’s students and teachers loved their informative day at the beach, and CSLI’s marine educators look forward to the next opportunity to share their knowledge and resources with Long Island students. Click here to read more about this field trip, and find out more about CSLI’s education programs here.
