SOFO Nature & Birdwatching Cruise on the R/V Peconic: This program is for adults, teens, and children ages 10 and older.
Program Leader: Naturalist from the Stony Brook University School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS)
Let’s venture by boat into the remote areas of Shinnecock Bay onboard Stony Brook University/Southampton’s 45-ft. research vessel, Peconic, and marvel at the wealth of migratory birds and waterfowl that inhabit the region at this time of year. We’ll cruise along areas of the salt marsh and sand flats that are not visible by land and hopefully witness the activities of a variety of wildlife. Bring binoculars and a light snack.
There is a fee of $35 for SOFO members and $40 for nonmembers for this program. The program is for adults, but children ages 10 and older may attend.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
