Wheatley Students Help Prepare Hempstead House for Halloween during #DayofService

The Sands Point Preserve is a Long Island Gold Coast treasure that evokes the days of The Great Gatsby. The preserve includes the Hempstead House and “Falaise,” the Guggenheim mansion, the 216-acre preserve is a mixture of natural and landscaped areas. It includes nature trails, forests, meadows, beaches and cliffs.

As part of our 7th Annual Day of Service and Learning, Wheatley students headed up to Sands Point Preserve to provide some assistance. After being taught a bit about the history of the Sands Point Preserve, worked outdoors for a bit and also helped the Friends of Sands Point prepare for the various Halloween activities — in particular the Haunted Castle at Hempstead House. Led by Jo Beth Roberts and Joseph Crotty, the students had a wonderful time!
