Last week, 16 students from Mr. Michie’s two AP Environmental Science classes presented their ideas on land use at the 2019 Rockland PLUS Land Use Symposium at St. Thomas Aquinas College. For the past few months, volunteers from Keep Rockland Beautiful, Inc. and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory visited the classrooms to teach students about proper land use. Each class chose a different location around Rockland County to study and formulate new ideas for the locations which included the Suffern Quarry and Patrick Farm. While at the symposium each group met with mentors to present their plans and answer questions.

It was a great learning experience for all that incorporated collaboration and community relations. #MountiePride#SuffernCentral #Collaboration
