9AM – 2PM
Red House at Inlet Pond County Park, 65275 County Road 48, Greenport, NY (map).
Incorporating native plants is a great way to help birds get a leg up as they search for food and shelter. Join us on May 27 and 28, 9AM – 2PM, at the Red House for our 2nd Annual Native Plant Sale. We’ll have lots of useful information as well as plants ready for your garden — grown by Glover Perennials.

Tuesdays with Tom

Breeding Birds at Dam Pond aka Ruth Oliva Preserve
Meet at the Red House at Inlet Pond County Park, 65275 County Road 48, Greenport, NY at 8AM (map).
June is breeding time for most birds. We’ll check out wood, field and pond for breeding birds. Be sure to have on your listening ears as all trees and shrubs will be fully leafed-out and bird songs may be the only clue to what species are around. Please register by calling Tom at 631-275-3202 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
