Long Island Sound is an essential part of human health for Long Island
residents for the commercial, recreational and natural resources it affords.
The Long Island Sound Connections program teaches children how to bridge human
actions to concerns over water and land conservation in order to create the
next generation of sustainable developers and
conservationist scientists who
understand the relationship between human action and natural resources. Guided
by a scientist and educator, this virtual program brings students, educators
and experts together across Long Island and Connecticut to compare and contrast
Long Island Sound’s coastal habitats to in relationship to human impacts.
Students are tasked with the challenge of working in teams to design
technological and behavioral solution models to ensure the long-term vitality
and health of Long Island’s precious coastal habitats and resources, while
providing for recreational and commercial use.
