North Fork Marine Education

Youth Ed Mailchimp Headers

Cornell Cooperative Extension has been educating the citizens of Suffolk County for over 30 years about our marine resources, and offers educational programming both in-school or at the Suffolk County Marine Environmental Learning Center in Southold. Our youth education programs are designed to immerse students in Long Island's unique marine habitats. Inspiring and educating the next generation of scientists and stewards is something we feel is key to creating, maintaining and sustaining a health marine environment. Through field excursions, interactive experiences with local marine life, hands-on restoration projects and creation of marine inspired artwork, our youth education program participants partake in meaningful and memorable experiences!
