Participants will look for evidence of animal life in the wetlands and woods of Long Pond Park. We’ll also look for signs of spring bird life, examine the geology of the area and observe evidence of past human use of the area.
Meet beside Public School 6 on Page Avenue and Academy Avenue.
Participants will begin with an investigation of thee area’s unique, local ecology before moving on to exam the flotsam and jetsam accumulated at the high tide lines. This is a sure way to discover what Nature’s debris has tell us. As the water recedes with the tide the group will move into the intertidal zone to find our what sorts of living things survive in this challenging environment. A variety of crabs, snails, clams, worms and small fish are likely to be discovered.
It’s going to be muddy so dress appropriately.
Meet at the parking to a the bottom of Page Avenue, below Hylan Boulevard.
