Just in time for Halloween, The Secret Life of Spiders and Other Creepy Crawlies

Program Leader: Jeffry Petracca—Curator of Entomology, Entomologist, Long Island Aquarium and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory DNA Learning Center

Of all the “creepy crawlies” that we encounter on a regular basis, spiders instill great fear and disgust for many. But, should we be afraid? A closer look at the lifestyles of these unpopular animals reveal a surprising level of intelligence and structural beauty that show just how unfounded our fears are! This Halloween join Long Island Aquarium Entomologist and Educator, Jeffry Petracca, for a virtual discussion of the lifestyles of spiders and other creepy crawlies. You will meet many from the living collections at the Aquarium (among others) and learn how they are really not very scary at all. This program is for all ages.

Zoom Presentation: People and the Environment

Too often, when many people think of the environment we see people as separate from it. In mainstream American environmentalism, to protect ecosystems, it is believed that humans must be removed from or highly regulated within a space to keep it pristine. People and corporations have caused damage to the natural world through encroachment, overdevelopment, and overconsumption. However, people have also had many positive effects. Indigenous communities have shaped landscapes, helped stabilize wildlife populations, and created and maintained productive forest and grassland habitats. Join Rachel as she highlights indigenous perspective and history to promote intersectionality and accessibility within natural places.
This program is for adults, teens, and children age 10 and older.

The Hamptons Observatory: The Great Conjunction & Other Celestial Events

Program Leaders: Hamptons Observatory Astronomers

Every twenty years, the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn meet each other in the night sky as they both cycle their way slowly through the zodiac. This year, however, the pair will meet in the closest conjunction in approximately 400 years, merging almost into a single point in the evening sky of the winter solstice. You won’t want to miss this sight, nor the other splendid opportunities for winter stargazing, from Orion’s brilliant nebula to the Geminid meteor shower. Hamptons Observatory will guide you through the celestial calendar and help you choose the best nights to step outdoors in your warmest winter outfit.
