Manorville Hills
Tom Moran takes the lead for this walk ([email protected]) – meet him at the first parking area within the park, located on the east side of County Road 111 (Captain Daniel Roe Highway), Manorville. Various trails in various habitats usually host a nice selection of our returning nesting birds among the new growth woods and shrubs. Sometimes hilly, this walk is approximately 2.5 miles.

Quogue Wildlife Refuge
Eileen Schwinn ([email protected]) leading – meeting in the parking lot, 3 Old Country Road, Quogue. The walk – at this Home of ELIAS – circles the Ice Pond, travels to the North Pond and visits the Chocolate Pudding Pond through new and old woods and streams. There are real changes in the woods, with wide, open spaces due to the clear cuts to hopefully limit the spread of the Southern Pine Beetle. If you haven’t walked the trails at QWR you have to join us now! The walk is about 1.5 miles on wide pine-needle pathways.

Approximately 1.5 miles on wide, neatly mowed paths, with multiple stops to observe and listen, this walk honors the late Eric Salzman, a director of SoFo and long-time friend and mentor to many members of ELIAS, including the leader, Eileen.
