Nature Walk from SOFO to Poxabogue County Park with Dai Dayton

January 14, 10 am11 am.

Join Dai on this 2.5-mile winter nature walk as you go from the old field habitat of Vineyard field, behind SOFO, to Suffolk County’s Poxabogue Park, one of the first open space protection acquisitions in the Long Pond Greenbelt. The name Poxabogue is derived from the Native American paugasa-baug meaning “a pond that opens out or widens.” True to its name, the surface size of the pond changes when there are periods of heavy rainfall or drought. Poxabogue Pond is one of the 13 coastal plain ponds in the Long Pond Greenbelt. Enjoy grasslands, pond shore, and oak/hickory/pitch pine forest while you explore this remarkable landscape with Dai. Advanced reservations are required for all events. To register for this program, please contact email [email protected] or call 631-537-9735.
