First Winter Seal Walk at Cupsogue Beach County Park: Adults/Children 6+
Walk Leader: South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
With the cold of winter, many northern animal visitors come to the South Shore of Long Island to find food—among them Pinnipeds, or seals. The three most common species of seals that visit Long Island at this time of year are harbor seals, grey seals, and harp seals. Join us on a walk toward the ocean at Cupsogue Beach County Park, where at low tide you can expect to see some of these seals sunning themselves on the distant sandbar. It may be cold and windy, so please bundle up.
Advance reservations are required. Programs free for SOFO members. Non-members: $10/ adult, $7.50/child 3-12 years, 2 and under free. Fees include free admission to the museum on the day of the event.
Please call 631-537-9735 for reservations and info about meeting place.
