Town Honors Bethpage, Syosset Seniors For ReWild Environmental Project

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino (front row fifth from left) and his colleagues on the Town Board recently recognized students from Bethpage and Syosset high schools for advancing an environmental initiative known as ReWild Long Island, a native planting project supporting sustainable landscaping, biodiversity and climate resilience. The students researched native Long Island plants and built 5×5 gardens throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties to increase the ecological diversity and sustain pollinator species such as bees and butterflies.
Among those honored were Riya Saha and Ankur Raghavan from Bethpage High School and Nishanth Naveen, Shreya Vasudevan , Dylan Benedictus and Samyukhtha Arun Kumar from Syosset High School. The students were joined by Superintendent David Schneider and High School Principal Nicholas Jantz of the Bethpage School District and Superintendent Dr. Thomas Rogers of the Syosset School District.
