Teaching Resources

A Public Perception Survey, conducted by the Long Island Sound Study in 2006, suggests that Long Island Sound residents are not well informed when it concerns environmental issues and terms. For example, less than one-third  questioned in the survey knew that storm drains empty into the Sound and its tributaries. The survey also indicated that environmentally knowledgeable residents are more likely to engage in behaviors to prevent pollution (such as lawn care practices to reduce fertilizer runoff into storm drains). Below are many educational resources that we encourage educators to use in their classrooms or during their programs in order to help us educate  the 8.8 million residents of our watershed.
