​Field Trips

Saturday, March 3, 2018, meet at 8 am for a bird walk at
Elizabeth Morton NWR
Leader: Byron Young

This is always a special walk. Just at the edge of winter, you will be greeted by lots of hungry birds, that eat right out of your hand. Frequently there are pockets of over-wintering birds. Great photo ops as you are close to the birds. Meet at the Refuge parking lot at 8 am. It is roughly a 2 mile walk to the beach and around the refuge. Dress warmly and appropriately. Bring binoculars! Bird seed will be provided. 

Saturday, April 14, 2018, meet at 8:30 am for a bird walk at
North Fork Preserve
Leader: Eileen Schwinn
Vernal ponds, meadows and wooded areas attract a variety of visiting migrants and nesting birds, in addition to raptors, and thrushes. Each day is different during migration season. Dress for ticks, however, we will be on mowed paths for most of the walk.

The entrance to North Fork Preserve is on Sound Avenue, just east of Church Lane in Riverhead. Follow the long, paved driveway to the parking area by the former hunting lodge. 

For all our walks be sure to dress for the weather and bring binoculars! 

    All levels of naturalists, including beginners, are most welcome on
    Eastern Long Island Audubon field trips. 

    Most trips are free to attend, however, sometimes the venue we are 
    visiting has a fee.

    We try to make a note of it in the notice.

​Eileen Schwinn is the Field Trip Chair.
