Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays

Resources for Educators

Students can have fun while learning about the estuary through PEP's worksheets, activities, and pamphlets.

Kids Corner

Teaching children about the estuary is vital for sparking interest and creating a new wave of environmental protectors. With young stewards in our community, we can better protect the future of the estuary and ensure its health for generations to come. The Peconic Estuary Partnership has developed fun worksheets, activities and pamphlets to inspire young minds to respect the estuary and value all it has to offer. If you are looking for something in particular and do not find it here, please reach out to peptalk@peconicestuary.org. We will be happy to create something that meets your needs.
