Program Leaders: South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Environmental Educators
If you have ever been to the museum and spoken to any of our educators, you know how much we careabout preserving the natural environment of the South Fork. The mission of the museum itself is tostimulate interest in, advance knowledge of, and foster appreciation for the natural environment. Ourstaff has decided that—in order to uphold the mission of the museum—we need to take direct action to help keep Long Island habitats pollution-free. That’s why we are doing our “SoFo Cleans the Beach” monthly programs. During our cleaning sessions, we will tally what type of trash we are finding, and, when we are finished, weigh it out. Over time, we will be able to get an idea of the kind of trash that is washing up on our beaches… and we can knowledgeably advocate avoiding those materials in the future.
Join us and celebrate Earth Day every day as we do our best to keep our beaches free of pollutants. Heavy rains cancel.
