ECO: NATIVE PLANT AND TREE TOUR with Shane Weeks
Join Shane Weeks on a nature hike at the Elizabeth Morton Wildlife Refuge as he speaks on native plants and their traditional uses for the Indigenous peoples of Long Island.
Established in 1954, the Elizabeth A. Morton National Wildlife Refuge protects a 187-acre peninsula on Noyack and Little Peconic Bays. Exceptionally diverse habitats include sandy and rocky beaches that fringe the peninsula, while wooded bluffs overlook the Bays. Morton consists of upland forest, fields, ponds, salt marsh, beach and a lagoon. These habitats are used by a variety of wildlife including white-tailed deer, eastern chipmunk, painted turtles, green frogs, songbirds and osprey.
