Walk Leader: Frank Quevedo, Executive Director, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO)
Thousands of scoters, loons, eiders, and many other arctic avians come to our inshore waters off Montauk Point each winter to feed on the vegetation and invertebrates that live on the ocean floor. Here, we will scan the ocean surface with our scopes and try to identify these arctic visitors as they dive for food and frolic in the surf. Bring binoculars and/or a scope and a field guide to birds of the eastern United States, if you have them. This program is for adults and teens; however children ages 10 and older may attend.
There is a $10 fee for Adults and $7 fee for children for this program. Members are free.
Please note that, as mandated by the latest State Executive Order regarding COVID-19 safety precautions, our outdoor nature walks and programs will at all times follow stringent six-feet distancing separation protocols required by the Department of Health for the safety of our participants and environmental educators. We will provide masks and gloves for all attendees.
