If you have them, please bring binoculars (we have a few pairs to lend) and a field guide to birds of the eastern United States. If you don’t have a field guide, we’ll have one here for you to use.

This special meeting of the club, with John Shemilt, will focus on purple martins. John is SOFO’s Purple Martin Steward and has been fascinated by purple martins since he was a young child. This is a FREE program.

Reptiles and amphibians are cold-blooded animals collectively called “herps”, and the study of these creatures is termed herpetology.

Walk Leader: Xylia Serafy, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator

Signs of spring are finally here! On a warm spring night, you can hear the unique sound of a Spring Peeper chorus. Spring Peepers (Pseudacris crucifer), one of Long Island’s tree frogs, produce some of the earliest sounds of spring and for many are a sign that winter’s everlasting chill has finally come to an end. The loud, sleigh-bell chorus that we hear is how the males search to find a mate. The breeding period lasts from March to June, when 800-1000 eggs per female are laid in marshes, vernal pools, and other shallow wetlands. Although boisterous, these tiny frogs are rarely seen. Join Xylia at dusk for a search through Big Reed Pond to locate these elusive chorus frogs. Please note, there is a Suffolk County Parks fee of $4 for all participants.

Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.

Cleanup Crew: SOFO Environmental Educators

Did you know it takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to break down in the ocean? Every day thousands of tons of waste and trash are dumped into oceans worldwide. Not only does this waste harm—and sometimes kill—the marine life we know and love, it makes its way up the food chain into the food we eat, hurting humans as well. In just one hour, you can help make the beach a cleaner and safer place for everyone! Please join us in our efforts to keep our hometown beaches pollution-free! This is a FREE program.

Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.

The Lure of the Moon and the Legacy of Apollo—Astronomy Talk & Moon/Star Viewing with Montauk Observatory

Adults/Children Ages 10+ *STEAM Programming

Speaker & Observation Leader: William Francis TaylorNASA Solar System Ambassador & Montauk Observatory Educator

The Moon is the closest world to the Earth and the most distant place humans have ever set foot on. Its existence has shaped life on our planet, and its beauty and mystery have inspired cultures for millennia. Fifty years ago, the first voyagers set out across the vast expanse of space to bring us all one small step forward in understanding our universe. In this illustrated lecture, NASA Solar System Ambassador and Montauk Observatory Educator, William Francis Taylor, will answer such questions as: what did the Apollo astronauts learn; what have we learned since; and what mysteries remain for the next generation of explorers? At the end of the discussion, everyone will have an opportunity (weather permitting) to see the beauty of the Moon for themselves with telescopes provided by the South Fork Natural History Museum and the Montauk Observatory. This is a FREE program.

Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
