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.

The Lakes of Patchogue

Meet 8:30 am at the parking area at the corner of Lake Drive and East Main Street in East Patchogue by the side of Swan Lake. We will check out Swan Lake and then visit several other area lakes to look at the bountiful water birds that flock to
 LI in the winter. Hopefully a surprise or two will be waiting for us. Contact Rosemary Valente to register:

Shinnecock East
Meet at 8:30 am on the EAST (Southampton) side of Shinnecock Inlet at the County Park. Hopefully, we will see Alcids, wintering ducks and shorebirds, and perhaps an owl and hunting raptor or two! We will be walking the jetty, shoreline and the dunes. Perhaps a stop along the road heading east after the park, will allow a Bittern or ?? to be found! Dress for the weather.
