Sunday, September 10 – Sundays at 2: Introduction to Geocaching

Sunday, September 10 – Sunday at 2 Event: Introduction to Geocaching.  2PM. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.  Join us as we learn more about the Geocaches in the Long Pond Greenbelt, how to find them and how to create and hide your own.  Weather and time permitting we will take a hike to find a nearby geocache.  Meet at the Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center, 1061 Bridgehampton/ Sag Harbor Turnpike just north of Scuttle Hole Road (look for the Open flag and follow the driveway to the end).  For more info contact Dai Dayton, 631-745-0689.

Friday, September 15 – Astronomy of the Milky Way. 7:00-8:30PM

Friday, September 15 – Astronomy of the Milky Way.  A Montauk Observatory Lecture and Guided Tour of the Night Sky through a Telescope (tour of the night sky part of this program is weather permitting). 7:00PM-8:30PM. Cosponsored by the Montauk Observatory, the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) and the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt.  Dr. Inglis is Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics at Suffolk County Community College. Previously, he worked at Princeton, as well as several other universities in the U.K., and has used many of the world’s largest telescopes in his research, which has included nebula morphology, active galaxies, cosmology, and cosmic rays. He is the author of several books for amateur astronomers and texts for students of astrophysics. He is currently working with other astronomers around the world on cataloging the faintest celestial objects visible to the naked eye.  The Milky Way is our home galaxy, yet there is still much that we do not know or comprehend about its origin, structure, and content. Indeed, the latest research has caused some well-known ideas to be refined or discarded completely. In this lively and well-illustrated lecture, Dr. Mike Inglis will cover many facets of the Milky Way, starting with the first attempts to measure its size, how and when it was formed, and its location in the universe. Making use of the latest research on the Galaxy, he will present an overview of our current understanding of the Milky Way and what its future holds.

Meet at the SoFo Museum, 377 Bridgehampton Turnpike, 200 yards north of the RR tracks. For more information contact Dai Dayton, 631-745-689.  The Montauk Observatory brings free science and cultural programs to the South Fork communities.

Thursday, October 5 – Full Hunter’s Moon Hike. 7:30PM-8:30PM.

Thursday, October 5 – Full Hunter’s Moon Hike. 7:30PM-8:30PM. Co-sponsored by Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt and the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).  Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reasons. The leaves are falling from trees, the deer are fattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead. Because the fields were traditionally harvested in late September or early October, hunters could easily see fox and other animals that come out to eat the fallen grains. Join us for this leisurely paced one-hour hike in Vineyard Field, the field behind the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) and afterward, for some convivial conversation and refreshments in the moonlight.  Meet at the SoFo Museum parking lot, 377 Bridgehampton Turnpike, 200 yards north of the RR tracks. Leader: Jean Dodds, 631-599-2391.

Sunday, October 22 – Bark: Get to Know Your Trees. 1PM.

Bark: Get to Know Your Trees
Sunday, October 22nd
1:00pm – 4:00pm
A Special 20th Anniversary Workshop
FLPG Member:  $15
Non-Member:  $25*
*includes FLPG membership
ISA CEUs Available:  3.00
The traits typically used to describe trees—leaves, twigs, and buds—are often hard to see or seasonally absent. Join Michael for an exploration of bark, which is always visible, in any season. As you hone your perceptive abilities you will learn about a system for identifying tree species by their bark, and discover why such a variety of bark characteristics exist. Why do some species have smooth bark, while on others it is thick and broken? Why does bark peel

Michael will be available to sign copies of his books, Bark: A Field Guide to Trees of the Northeast and Drawing Trees and Leaves: Observing and Sketching the Natural World. For more information visit: www.knowyourtrees.com

As a freelance naturalist, writer, photographer, illustrator and educator Michael strives to share the science and beauty of natural history in an accessible and compelling fashion. He writes and teaches about the fascinating structure, function, and ecology of trees—including their bark, buds, leaves, roots, and wood—for audiences at all levels of experience, and explores how knowing the natural history of the places we live and love fosters connection and the feeling of home.

The Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center is located at 1061 Bridgehampton/Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton – just north of Scuttle Hole Road (look for the Open flag and follow the driveway to the end).  Refreshments will be served.  For more information contact Jean Dodds, 631-599-2391 or greenbeltnews@aol.com.
