Winter Walks- Lighthouse Trail

February 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

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


Enjoy the passiveness of winter as we hike the Fire Island Lighthouse trail. This is an out and back trail mostly on boardwalk and it’ll bring us to the beach in Fire Island National Seashore. We may be able to spot deer, small mammals, raptors, songbirds and shorebirds including some migratory species. As we reach the shore, we will work on our observation skills and do a group journaling activity. 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 Robert Moses Field 5 parking lot.

  • Please dress warm and wear layers- it will feel MUCH colder on the beach than on land!
  • Hiking boots with thick socks
  • Hat/sunglasses

  • Binoculars (I have extra)
