SOFO Representative: Melanie Meade, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Education and Outreach Coordinator
Join SOFO for this day of free, family-fun marine activities and meet the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard, the nation’s oldest continuous seagoing service, whose mission is to keep commercial and recreational fishers safe. Get up-close to a helicopter, boats, and the equipment used by the Coast Guard for search and rescue efforts. Watch a K-9 demonstration with Suffolk County Sheriff canine officers, experience a seal release with Riverhead Research Center, haul seine nets from the bay, and participate in a variety of activities offered by local environmental partners. Be sure to look for SOFO’s Melanie Meade as she shows you the microscopic world of Shinnecock Bay. Food is available. Rain cancels.
