Thiele Meets With Sag Harbor’s Newest Environmental Pioneer


Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele, Jr. met with fifth grader Sabrina McManus about her environmental project to raise awareness of endangered species at the Sag Harbor Elementary School on May 31. Sabrina made dozens of colorful plaster-and-resin discs decorated with an endangered species and hid them along multiple nature trails in Sag Harbor and Southampton for hikers to find and learn more about the animals at her website, Assemblyman Thiele first heard from Sabrina when she wrote to him for a class project about the importance of wetlands and the species that depend on them.
