Dune Road Exploration
Leader: Eileen Schwinn
Meet at TIANA BEACH BAYSIDE PARKING LOT, Hampton Bays.
Since SuperStorm Sandy, the Tiana Beach bayside has been a very welcome stop for resident birds, as well as early southward-bound migrating shore birds. Join us for a long stay at low tide, and perhaps, an exploration along other Hot Spots of Dune Road, Hampton Bays. Bring sunscreen, water, and a hat (although there is a covered pavilion to view from, if necessary). Town of Southampton Temporary Parking Permits will be available to non-residents. For more information, please contact Eileen Schwinn at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Call: 516-662-7751 the day of the Field Trip. Rain or shine!

Cupsogue Mud and Sand Flats
Leader: Eileen Schwinn
Meet at the WESTERN END OF THE CUPSOGUE PARKING LOT, Westhampton Dunes.
A refreshing walk of about a mile, along the sand road, then shoreline, of this lovely Suffolk County Park will bring us to an easy crossing to the popular hang-out of gulls, terns and shorebirds. A rail or two, and possibly all the “local” heron species are likely to be seen, as well as the marshland sparrows, along the way. Unless you are holy or can fly, be prepared to walk in the shallow water to the Island. Barefoot is fine, although hot sand to the shore is likely to be encountered! Bring water, a light snack ( if you wish), plenty of sun block, a hat, and perhaps insect repellant - we will be arriving to the crossing point prior to dead low tide (which is approx. 10:30 am), bird the flats, and return before the tide get too high. Apologies for this being a mid-week walk - the tidal pattern for this August prevents a weekend visit. There is an entrance fee for Cupsogue, however, arrival prior to 8:00 am will probably allow you to bypass paying anything! Contact Eileen Schwinn at email@example.com for more information. Call: 516-662-7751 the day of the Field Trip. Rain or shine - but cancelled if a thunder storm!!
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.
