  • General Membership Meeting

    Thursday, February 18, 2016

    Place: Connetquot River State Park Preserve - Sunrise Highway, Oakdale, NY

    Time: 7:00 P.M.

    Program: Turtle Rescue

    Description: Join the Turtle Rescue of the Hamptons for a turtle exclusive! In February, turtles are hibernating to survive the cold winter months, but in the spring and summer they move around and can be seen. All year long, turtles face challenges both from the natural environment and from man-made sources. Learn about what the rescue is doing to help our local turtle populations. We'll explore the lives of Long Island's turtles so you can identify and help these turtles prosper in their natural environment.
