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.
