Walk Leader: Dr. Keith Serafy. Dr. Serafy is a marine invertebrate zoologist who has recently retired after teaching 27 years at Southampton College of LIU and the last 12 years at Long Island University, Brooklyn. He has lived on the East End since 1973.
Join Dr. Keith Serafy for an evening ocean beach stroll along Gibson’s Beach. Dr. Serafy will talk about: sand dune ecology and the special adaptations of the inhabitants, adaptations which allow them to survive the stressful dune environment, and how the beach profile changes seasonally. He will also identify and discuss the plants and animals you find washed ashore as well as those living intertidally. If you have wondered about any beach treasures you’ve found washed ashore, this is your chance to ask an expert about them.
