Our Island’s History – The Natural History of Long Island with Tara Rider, Ph.D.
What’s intriguing about Long Island and our surrounding waters is that so much of the story of our natural history happened in the last 12,000 years, when humans were here. This talk will discuss the features that make Long Island’s geology distinctive and have shaped the peoples who have inhabited this island. From salt marshes and cranberry bogs to hardwood forests and the Hempstead Plains, our Island has been continuously being reshaped and the landscape influences our society today.
