Outdoor Environmental Education Program Goes Virtual

To assist districts with bringing engaging science instruction to their students, the Western Suffolk BOCES Outdoor Environmental Education Program (OEEP) is offering many of its programs through virtual platforms.

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the strict healthy and safety protocols in place, field trips that were once an integral part of instruction may not be a feasible option for many schools at this time. Despite the current circumstances, the OEEP believes that bringing outdoor experiences to students is imperative so program staff collaborated to design and prepare engaging virtual programs that can be delivered various ways.
