Long Island Botanical Society Field Trip

October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

- FREE

***EVENT SPONSORED AND RUN BY THE LONG ISLAND BOTANICAL SOCIETY***

Botany and Geology

We will meet at the visitor’s center for an introduction to the land use history of the park and then take a leisurely hike to the dunes and bluffs overlooking Long Island Sound looking at autumn wildflowers and interesting geological features including hoodoos, locally called “The Pinnacles.” The land was acquired in the 1960s for use as a sand mining operation by the Levon Corp. and, in the 1970s, by the Long Island Lighting Co. as the site for a proposed nuclear power plant. New York State purchased the property in 2002 and opened it to the public in 2017.

Please register by contacting Eric (elamont@optonline.net) with your name and contact phone number. Bring a liquid and snack or sandwich, as desired.
