Marine Biology Teacher, Ms. Erin Oshan, and her students participated in the “Trout in the Classroom” project which is a nationwide organization. Local liaison, Mr. John Fischer, from Trout Unlimited helped to spearhead the project this past fall which in turn was then completed by students in the Oceanography class. The eggs were received in December, and after hatching in late January students nurtured them until they reached about 3 inches in length.
The annual Marine Biology Club Beach Clean Up was another great success on May 21 at West Neck Beach in Lloyd Harbor. This community service activity is sponsored twice a year by the club, one in the spring and one in the fall. Students from grades 7-12 participate along with Marine Bio Club advisor, Ms. Erin Oshan. Thank you so much for keeping our local beach areas clean for our community!
