Students from Goosehill Primary School recently visited the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery and Aquarium to learn from experts as they observed ponds filled with brook trout and tanks housing snakes and frogs.
They were able to feed the brook trout, tossing fish kibble into the pond all at once so they could witness a frenzy of feeding at the surface.
The students will be returning in June to release their class turtles that they have been nurturing and monitoring this school year.
Harborfields Envirothon Top Finishers
Harborfields High School’s Envirothon teams finished in first and second place in Suffolk County at the Long Island Regional Envirothon, held on April 27 at Usdan Summer Camp for the Arts in Wheatley Heights.
The annual environmental studies program and competition for high school students in Nassau and Suffolk Counties isbased on five subject areas of aquatics, forestry, soils, wildlife and a rotating current issue, which for this year was waste management. Teams took tests in each subject area and made oral presentations on a plan to address waste management issues.
The two Harborfields teams – Chad Berlent, Michael Considine, Isha Dave, Nicole Feibel, Anya Glass, Aidan Katz, Sophia Knutson, Chris Qi, Alison Ryan, Liam Storm, Ashley Xie and Luke Zhang – won medals, Yeti mugs and $500 college scholarships.
