One way to learn more about climate change, and its influence on the inhabitants of the planet, is visiting a natural history museum.

 

Maria's parents suggested she and Ricardo visit the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan. It has a fascinating exhibit on climate change.

Whether you visit in person or explore the AMNH articles and blogs, you will discover a wealth of insight about Climate Change.

Journal your discoveries. Has your findings increased your desire to learn and do more?

Ricardo and a few school mates signed up to a STEM camp through one of the local colleges. The first outing will be at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. Exploring aquariums are a great way to see how climate change affects our oceans and its inhabitants.

The Long Island Sound Study is looking into volunteers to help protect the sound. Explore opportunities to protect the ocean and sea life then log what you learned.
