Winter Hike: Prosser Pines Nature Preserve
March 11 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Please note, this event is for registered for Nature Initiative members only. To learn more about our youth program, click here.
Prosser Pines is one of the oldest surviving White Pine Plantations to exist on the eastern seaboard of the United States. We’ll enjoy a short loop trail in the vast forest that winds around the 90 ft tall pines. Other unique features include teepees and open farm fields. If we have time, we’ll cross the street to Cathedral Pines County Park which is a 340 acre park situated along the headwaters of the Carmans River. We will work on our observation skills and note any wildlife we spot along the way. This is a unique opportunity to discover various habitats and landscapes, explore new trails, immerse ourselves in nature and challenge ourselves in a fun way!
We will be meeting in the parking lot off Yaphank Middle Island Road.
