Alewife Walk─Searching for One of the East End’s Most Unique and Threatened Migratory Fish Species, the Alewife─with Peconic Baykeeper Peter Topping: This walk is for adults, teens, and children ages 5 and older.
Walk Leader: Peter Topping, Peconic Baykeeper
Streams and rivers along the East Coast once “ran silver” every spring as alewives and other diadromous fish made their annual spawning migrations from saltwater to freshwater. Join Peconic Baykeeper Pete Topping and SOFO staff as we search for alewives in Southampton’s Alewife Creek. Along the way, we will learn about the history of these threatened and ecologically important fish as well as the efforts being made to protect their future on Long Island. This will also be a great opportunity to see osprey, herons, and egrets so bring binoculars!
