April 25, 2016 11:36 am PIFS Long Term Commitment to the Environment is Honored
Putnam Indian Field School has been recognized by the State of Connecticut for its long-term commitment to providing environmental and sustainability education, improving the health and wellness of their students and staff, and reducing environmental impact and cost. PIFS is excited to continue this journey with other CT Green LEAF Schools as they share resources, expertise, experiences and track their growth as a leader in environmental practice and education.
PIFS children and teachers celebrated Earth Day with a visit from Harbor Watch, a non-profit program that works to safeguard and improve the quality of the Long Island Sound. Scientists from Harbor Watch, engaged the children in hands-on investigation of the creatures and vegetation that exist in the Sound’s ecosystem. The children were captivated by what they saw, touched and heard. This visit enhances what the children have experienced in the Science Resource Room with their own touch tank and during their Smokey’s field trips to local beaches, nature centers and parks.
