Program Presenter: Melanie Meade, SOFO Education/Outreach Coordinator

Join Melanie and observe some of our common woodpeckers as they search for food in the backyard. The nearby woods have many old trees that are home to a host of boring insects, like bark beetles, and insect grubs are a favorite food of woodpeckers. Come along and meet the Downy Woodpecker, and other woodpeckers. This program, with photos, videos, and a bird quiz, is fun for young children, young birders and the young at heart.

SOFO Cleans the Beach
Jun 13 @ 3:00 pm

Cleanup Crew: South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Nature 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 natural environment of the South Fork. The mission of the museum itself is to stimulate interest in, advance knowledge of, and foster appreciation for the natural environment. Our staff has decided that—in order to uphold the mission of the museum—we need to take direct action to help keep Long Island habitats. That’s why we have decided to continue our “SoFo Cleans the Beach” program throughout the winter. We hope you will join us on our mission to pick up as much trash as possible. Our plan is to go to a different beach each month and clean for one hour. During our cleaning session, we will tally up what type of trash we are finding 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
