Exploring the Walking Dunes───In Search of Wild Cranberries and Carnivorous Plants: This program is for adults, teens, and children ages 5 and older.

Walk Leader: Melanie Meade

This area of dune habitat in Napeague is unique among the many sand dunes on Long Island. When the wind blows just right the sand is pushed forward, making the dunes “walk” a few inches each year. After more than 100 years, the dunes have covered and then uncovered a forest. The dunes also contain cranberry bogs that are home to sundews, a type of carnivorous plant. When you walk along the trail in the Walking Dunes in the fall you can see cranberry plants with ripe berries and if you look closely, you can spot the sundews around the edge of the bog.

There is a $15 fee for Adults and $10 fee for children for this program. Members are free.

Advanced reservations are required for all events. To register for this program, please contact us at info@sofo.org or call 631-537-9735.
