Cosa farete

We will explore Flax Pond, located in Old Field NY. This area is one of the best examples of a more "wild" salt marsh wetland in the area. At our first stop we will earn about the history of Flax Pond and the Marine Lab and get an overview of the hike plan. Then we will hike to the historic ocean inlet, looking for coastal birds with binoculars, and marine invertebrates. We will look for crabs, snails, horseshoe crabs, and learn about the overall zonation of the salt marsh ecosystem. Along the way, we will also carry a bucket to pick up trash that often gets washed up into the marsh and record it as part of a citizen science database. On our way to the inlet we will walk across a boardwalk, go through a salt marsh hammock, and traverse the high marsh . At the ocean, we will look for shells and do a "shell circle" and go through what we found (urchins, slipper limpets, etc.) as well as talk about microplastic pollution. If weather is good, we will seine and take a net through the salt marsh channels to find small animals. Overall, we hope to provide a fun and educational experience about the local marine life and ecosystems, and ocean conservation issues.

Cara

I grew up in this area since I was a child and graduated with a BS in marine science from the nearby university, Stony brook University's (SBU) School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, where conducted marine research. I have been working/volunteering in marine science/education, including outdoor explorations, for 7 years. I've run salt marsh tours with the GA Sea Grant program for children ages 5-18. While earning my MS in biology, I launched Daeira Conservation, which aims to create experiences that allow guests to explore underappreciated ecosystems and ideally participate in a hands on impact activity. My co-host, Dale Speer (dalespeer93@gmail.com) is earning his Biology BS at SBU and has worked at ecoresorts in South America leading outdoor reptile/amphibian hikes. He has worked in teaching biology and field research since 2015.

Dove ti troverai

We will be exploring Flax Pond, a local salt marsh managed by the Department of Environmental Conservation and Stony Brook University. Many people do not explore it because the entrance is somewhat obscured, the area isn't advertised as a state or county park, and a permit is required for access. The area is more "wild" and the trail is not always clear, however that's part of what makes it a great place to see wildlife and have an adventure.
