Tick-Borne Disease
What You Need to Know
Anna-Marie Wellins, DNP, M.Ed., ANP-C
Chances are that you, or someone you know, has been diagnosed with Lyme or another tick-borne disease. Dr. Anna-Marie Wellins, a member of the Medical Advisory Panel of Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Regional Tick-Borne Disease Resource Center, will speak about the types of diseases that are carried by the different species of ticks found on Eastern Long Island, and the symptoms, diagnostic tests, and treatment options that are available. Tips on preventing tick bites will also be shared. Each attendee will receive a free tick removal kit. There is no charge for this event and it is open to the public. For more information please call (516) 443-4906.

Dune Road, 
Hampton Bays 
Leader: Eileen Schwinn
Meeting at 8:00 am, NEW LOCATION: County Parking Lot at the End of Dune Road, overlooking the Shinnecock Inlet (east of Oakland’s Restaurant). ELIAS has bayside day passes to be used as we travel along Dune Road, and stop at Tiana, Trustee Roads and other Points of Interest, as the birds dictate. Restrooms are portapotty, or “real” at Ponquogue Pavillion (ocean side and walkable from bayside parking) and at Tiana (again, walkable on Ocean side from the bayside parking area).

Take a Walk &
Explore QWR
Enjoy a walk around Quogue Wildlife Refuge. We meet here but have you explored the Refuge, checked out the walk at the Fairy Dell, found the Chocolate Pudding Pond or crossed the far bridge or found the Butterfly Garden? If it is a nice evening, maybe we will catch the flying squirrels or see the Egrets roost. You just never know. Let's find out together and come back for a short movie, a meeting and a snack.

Totally Remarkable 
Cupsogue Sand Flats
Leader: Eileen Schwinn
Meet at 8:15 am, at the western end of the Cupsogue parking lot. Low tide is approximately 10:40 am giving us a good amount of time to meander the way to the Bay, and cross with minimal water. Parking fees are collected at this County Park, beginning at 8:30 am, so arrive early. Restrooms are on site, as are refreshment stands at the end of the walk. Once inside the park, one can stay all day if you wish.
