Long Island’s beaches are constantly undergoing change—storms shift large amounts of sand in a short time, seasonal tides and wind waves erode and deposit sediments, and daily tides and winds create patterns in the sediments along the shore. Take a walk along a bay beach bluff to observe these coastal processes by noticing the story told in the geologic features of the bluff face and the beach below.

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