Our expert guides include Hildur Palsdottir, Port Washington Monarch Alliance Founder David Jakim, assistant Max Goldman, and guest naturalists who bring a range of perspectives for each outdoor adventure. Check back for information about each upcoming walk – and join us on Second Sundays for an enriching experience on the preserve.

Next Walk – Wildlife Prepares for Winter
Sunday, December 8
3 – 4 PM

Sights and sounds reveal the year-round residents at the Sands Point Preserve. On this walk, we’ll discover how animals and birds adapt to colder temperatures. A special guest from the North Shore Audubon Society, Peggy Maslow, will help us spot birds that stay throughout the year, and we’ll discuss effective ways to support winter bird life, including calorie-rich natural food sources and shelter to keep warm. We will introduce ways to help winter birds thrive in your backyard, including native fruiting shrubs and trees. Bring your binoculars!
