Wheatley is fortunate to have a large expanse of space available for students. The “Wheatley Woods” is a popular destination for our cross country athletes and our science students. Some of the last remaining parts of the Hempstead Plains border the Wheatley Woods. As part of our 8th Annual Day of Service and Learning, students spent the day cleaning up the Wheatley Woods by removing some of the invasive species that can overrun the area.
Led by Steve Finkelstein, Dan Burke and DJ Paulson — with the incredible support of our grounds crew — students spent the day clearing brush, learning about the dangers of invasive species and improving the Wheatley Woods!
Thanks to Mr. Paulson for the photos!
