Members-Only Nature Trip to Oyster Bay

Saturday, November 3


CANCELED - Museum ornithologist Paul Sweet will lead a Member nature excursion to Oyster Bay, one of Theodore Roosevelt's beloved bird-watching sites. The trip will include visits to the grounds at Roosevelt's home at Sagamore Hill and a walk to nearby Cold Springs Harbor; a visit to Theodore Roosevelt's gravesite at Youngs Memorial Cemetery; and a visit to the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center, which was established in 1923 as the first Audubon Songbird Sanctuary in the nation. At the Audubon Center we will enjoy a Live Raptor presentation in addition to exploring the grounds.

*Note: The interior of the Sagamore Hill home is closed for construction, but the tour includes a visit to the on-site museum, as well as a  tour of the grounds and farms.

Please note: this program has been canceled due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy. All tickets will be refunded. Participants will be notified if the program can be rescheduled.
