Hike Big Reed Pond Nature Preserve
Saturday, October 12, 2024, 11:00 am
Big Reed, Montauk
Co-listed with Long Island Botanical Society
Led by Vicki Bustamante
Big Reed is the jewel of the 1,100-acre Montauk County Park and host to many rare and unusual plants. The hike will pass through some vulnerable ecological communities including a red maple-blackgum swamp, coastal oak-hickory forest and a coastal oak-beech forest. We will overlook Big Reed pond, a pristine 57-acre coastal plain pond without a house, building or road in sight. The area was the last ancestral home of the Montaukett tribe. We will be on the lookout for interesting plants and birds along the way.
Registration will be available as the date approaches.
This event is free, but advanced registration is required! Before the event, we will email you to confirm your attendance and provide more detailed information. If you are unable to attend, please contact us, as this will help us register those on the waiting list.
