"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." Albert Einstein
"Wilderness…the word suggests the past and
the unknown, the womb or earth from which we
all emerged. It means something lost and
something still present, something remote
and at the same time, intimate, something
buried in our blood and nerves, something
beyond us and without limit."

Reptiles and Amphibians of Long Island with Russell Burke, Phd
Wednesday, October 8, 2014 7:00 PM
This discussion will be an overview of the reptiles and amphibians of Long
Island, and why this is a special place for these species. Long Island is the
home of many interesting herps, some that are common elsewhere and others
for whom Long Island is a very special place. Tonight’s discussion will
emphasize several herp species: diamondback terrapins, Eastern box turtles,
hognose snakes, Italian wall lizards, and tiger salamanders.
Join us in helping to restore one of the finest preserves on Long Island. Come to the swamp for this fun and worthwhile effort. Snacks will be provided to the volunteers. Bring garden gloves if you have them; wear clothes and shoes you don’t mind getting muddy.

Audubon scientists have used hundreds of thousands of citizen-science observations and sophisticated climate models to predict how birds in the U.S. and Canada will react to climate change. Our work defines the climate conditions birds need to survive, then maps where those conditions will be found in the future as the Earth’s climate responds to increased greenhouse gases. It’s the broadest and most detailed study of its kind, and it’s the closest thing we have to a field guide to the future of North American birds. This comprehensive, first-of-its kind study predicts how climate change could affect the ranges of 588 North American birds.
