Stony Brook, NY – Kids can learn while having fun this summer at an amazing waterside, scientific laboratory right in the heart of an 88-acre wetlands preserve at Ward Melville Heritage Organization’s “Summer of Science” programs.

Salt Marsh Scientists for ages 13 to 17 will be offered July 30 through August 3 from 10 am to 1 pm.  Guided by local marine scientists, participants will conduct scientific research monitoring birds, crabs and plants.  Along with discovering the populations and biodiversity of the marsh, students will observe concepts such as zonation and learn about steps needed to protect the environment.

Salt Marsh Detectives is for ages 10 to 12 and takes place August 13 through 17 from 10 am to 1 pm.  This program touches on exploration of the shoreline and the scientist’s lab searching for clues to nature’s mysteries.  It will challenge students to investigate and discover the wonder and joy of marine science through hands-on experiences in the great outdoors.
