Cosponsored by the Peconic Land Trust
For this adventure, we’ll visit the wilds of Suffolk County’s Cranberry Bog Nature Preserve in western Southampton. Here we will explore what was, at one time, the largest cranberry farm on Long Island—the Woodhull Bog. Come learn about this past agricultural tradition for which Long Island once ranked near the top of the list for production, how cranberry farms were created, and what brought about their demise. We’ll also be on the lookout for wetland-dependent wildlife and talk about some of the native plants that have colonized this area of the Pine Barrens. There is a $5 charge for this program.
