S-V: Wildlife of Long Island
Delve into the wildlife groups of Long Island with an overview of birds and mammals of Long Island, including their life cycles, habitats, and natural history. Will will also consider how coyote, turkey, bobwhite quail, river otter, and other species are returning to Long Island, and the mechanisms for their reintroductions.
We'll start our day at Sweetbriar Nature Center (Smithtown, NY) for a close-up look at a multitude of local wildlife. Sweetbriar maintains live animal exhibits, a butterfly house, and also a wildlife rehabilitation center. Additionally, there is a forest trail which leads down to the Nissequogue River.
We will end our day at Nissequogue River State Park (Kings Park, NY) because of the wonderful watchable wildlife opportunities at a freshwater pond, in the forests, as well as the Nissequogue River itself, which is a tidal river...serving both salt and fresh water species.
As an extra bonus, there are a multitude of native and exotic specimen trees within the Park, such as ginkgo, beech, and tulip trees.
