The latest installment of Assemblywoman Sandy Galef’s cable television show, “Dear Sandy,” features Executive Director Kevin Carter and Director of Science Conservation Dr. Mike Rubbo of Teatown Lake Reservation. Teatown, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2013, is located in Ossining, within Galef’s Assembly District.
Carter and Rubbo discuss how Teatown has grown over the past 50 years, and what plans are in store for the future. Specifically, Teatown has been working with local high school students through the creation of the Teatown Environmental Science Academy. This close relationship with interested students has allowed Teatown to share its expertise while allowing high school students to learn about a variety of in-depth environmental topics. In addition, they talk about Teatown’s past role and future goals in environmental conservation, including their habitat management initiative.
“I am so pleased that Kevin and Mike were able to join me on my television show for a discussion on Teatown’s accomplishments and ideas for the future of this wonderful organization,” said Assemblywoman Galef. “In the past 50 years, Teatown has dedicated its mission to improving the environment, promoting conservation efforts, and teaching many about the benefits and beauty of nature. I hope others will tune in to learn about all of Teatown’s many accomplishments and hear about what they have to offer to the public.”
