Supervisor Romaine joins Woodhull Elementary students for 
“A Day in the Life of the Carmans River” at the Wertheim Wildlife Refuge in Shirley


On September 25, Supervisor Ed Romaine joined 4th grade students from Woodhull Elementary School in Shirley at the Wertheim Wildlife refuge on the banks of the Carmans River.  The students were participating in the Central Pine Barrens Commission and the US Fish and Wildlife Services annual "A Day in the Life of the Carmans River.” The Supervisor spoke with them about the importance of preserving our water quality and protecting area wildlife in Brookhaven Town.

During “A Day in the Life of the Carmans River,” students and teachers from 10 schools around Brookhaven Town engage in hands-on science exploration of the river. 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.
