Educational Resources

Lighthouses are very educational. Involvement with lighthouses will teach you much about history, nature, humanity, architecture, optics, the value of hard work and dedication, and many other subjects. If you spend any time around lighthouses, you can't help but learn.

The Long Island Chapter of the United States Lighthouse Society has established an Educational Resources Team to help teachers and students in the Long Island, New York area to find and use accurate information about their local lighthouse history.

Educational Resources Team Volunteer Opportunities - Join the Educational Resources Team to help create and disseminate resources for public education, including, but not limited to, educational materials and curriculum pertaining to Long Island lighthouses. Most of this work can be accomplished from the volunteer's home. Additionally, assistance is needed in conducting classroom presentations at schools during day time hours. E-mail [email protected] for more information.
