Club Leader: Miles Todaro, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
The Young Birders Club will be exploring shorebirds at Sagg Main Beach and passerines at Sag Swamp Preserve. There will be pizza and light refreshments at the museum afterwards.
Birding is a great way to make new friends, learn about the environment, and get outside…so join our Young Birders Club! The Club meets from 10 am to noon on the third Saturday of every month and is open to anyone ages 8–18 who is interested in learning about birds. We concentrate on birding in local areas, since Long Island has many great habitats that are home to a wide variety of species. The Club’s leader is SOFO Environmental Educator Miles Todaro. The two Club advisors, both avid birders, are Frank Quevedo, the South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Executive Director, and Barbara Blaisdell, educator and experienced birder. Please bring binoculars if you have them (we have a few pairs to lend) and a field guide to birds of the eastern United States. If you don’t have a field guide, we’ll have one here for you to use. This is a free program.
Advanced reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
