 West Islip HS IB researchers identify local trees thumbnail188067
Prior to the end of the school year, juniors enrolled in Brian Haldenwang’s International Baccalaureate biology class researched plant phyla characteristics, then participated in leaf collection and identification of common New York State trees. They then confirmed their findings using iNaturalist, which allows users to record observations from nature and learn about biodiversity.
