Please note, this event is for registered for Nature Initiative members only. To learn more about our youth program, click here.

We’ll be out in the preserve for another survey which will consist of us splitting into smaller groups. There will be 3 locations in the preserve which we will be rotating through:  one group at the East Farm Preserve, another at the parking lot on Shep Jones Lane and a third group at the boardwalk entrance. You will have clickers and data sheets to compile a count of visitors.

We are hoping to conduct these monthly surveys over the course of a year and could use your help. Its not one of our most physically demanding projects, but a satisfying and impactful one. We will also be setting up a nature sketching activity to integrate while we are out in the preserve. Come enjoy the trails, have some conversation, and relax for an afternoon while gathering some useful data. Our security staff are very grateful to be able to have volunteers for this effort!

We will be meeting at the Avalon Barn located on Shep Jones Lane in Stony Brook.
