SOFO: Snow Science with Melanie: Children ages 3-5

Cold temperatures make water vapor in clouds turn into snow. The snow falls to the ground. Sometimes snow freezes together more and changes into ice. If we could look at snow and ice up closely, we would see crystals that sparkle when the sunlight bounces off them. We’ll take a walk outside to look for crystals and gather materials to make our own sparklers. We can make snow too, using a little simple kitchen science. Materials fee: $3

SOFO: Migration Headache—The Dangers Birds Face—Could You Survive the Journey? Children ages 6-8

 Program Leader: Xylia Serafy, South Fork Natural History Museum Environmental Educator

Birds that migrate don’t travel all at once. Many migrating water birds—including ducks, geese, and herons—require more than one wetland habitat for nesting, resting, and wintering. The loss of even one of these habitats makes the journey that much harder for them. If you were a migrating water bird, do you think you would survive? Find out in this interactive migration survival game.

Advance reservations are required. Programs free for SOFO members. Non-members: $15/ adult, $10/child 3-12 years, 2 and under free. Fees include free admission to the museum on the day of the event.

“The Perils of Mr. Punch” follows the troubles and travails of puppetry’s favorite loudmouth, Mr. Punch. Nothing ever goes right-- his dog looks suspiciously like a skunk, his baby doesn’t behave, and crocodiles appear around every corner. The skillfully operated hand puppets are chock full of surprises and tricks, as is the elaborate stage. The show is rounded out with live music played on a variety of instruments, from the ukulele to the bicycle pump. It’s a low-tech old-time spectacle, entertaining to children of all ages: from one to one hundred.

SOFO: SOFO Cleans the Beach: All Ages – Free Event

Program Leaders: South Fork Natural History Museum Environmental Educators.

If you have ever been to the museum and spoken to any of our educators, you know how much we care about preserving the healthy, natural environment of the South Fork. This is clearly a part of the mission of the museum itself, which is to stimulate interest in, advance knowledge of, and foster appreciation for the natural environment. The SOFO staff has decided that—to uphold this important mission—we need to take direct action to help keep Long Island habitats pollution-free. That’s why we are doing our “SOFO Cleans the Beach” program. We hope you will join us to pick up as much trash as possible. We will tally what type of trash we find and, when we are finished, weigh it out. Over time, we will be able to get an idea of the kind of trash that is washing up on our beaches—and we can knowledgeably advocate avoiding those materials in the future. We’re excited to continue this program and hope you will join us in reaching our goal of keeping our hometown beaches pollution-free!

Please bring a flashlight and wear boots, as late winter rains will make the ground soggy. This walk will take place only if there have been heavy rains.

SOFO: Full Worm Moon Hike at SOFO with Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt: All Ages – Free Event

Co-Sponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and South Fork Natural History Museum
Walk Leader: Dai Dayton, President, Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt

The full Worm Moon was given its name by the Algonquin tribes that ranged from Ne w England to Lake Superior. At the time of this spring moon, the ground begins to soften, and earthworm castings reappear, inviting the return of robins. In some regions, this is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins. Join us on this one-hour, leisurely paced hike through open fields, and then enjoy some light refreshments and convivial conversation.

Please call 631-537-9735 for reservations and info about meeting place.

SOFO Cleans the Beach: All Ages – Free Event

SOFO Cleans the Beach: All Ages – Free Event

If you have ever been to the museum and spoken to any of our educators, you know how much we care about preserving the healthy, natural environment of the South Fork. This is clearly a part of the mission of the museum itself, which is to stimulate interest in, advance knowledge of, and foster appreciation for the natural environment. The SOFO staff has decided that—to uphold this important mission—we need to take direct action to help keep Long Island habitats pollution-free. That’s why we are doing our “SOFO Cleans the Beach” program. We hope you will join us to pick up as much trash as possible. We will tally what type of trash we find and, when we are finished, weigh it out. Over time, we will be able to get an idea of the kind of trash that is washing up on our beaches—and we can knowledgeably advocate avoiding those materials in the future. We’re excited to continue this program and hope you will join us in reaching our goal of keeping our hometown beaches pollution-free!
