During the week of July 15th, Elwood teachers Lori Fornaro and Kevin Richards participated in the Greentree Foundation’s eighth annual Teacher Ecology Workshop. Teachers participated in lectures, field-based programs and hands-on learning experiences designed to enhance their knowledge of Long Island’s natural world and introduce ways to incorporate nature into science curricula in Elwood.

“The Greentree experience has provided me with so many ideas for outdoor science-based activities,” Mrs. Fornaro stated. “I’m excited to share my new knowledge of Long Island's environment, which will make our Living Environment class discussions more relevant and meaningful to my students.” Mrs. Fornaro and Mr. Richards will continue their studies throughout the school year by attending Saturday field trips across Long Island.
