Birding with Frank: Shorebirds at Shinnecock Bay plus Wildlife Photography Instruction by Ken Grille

Saturday, August 10 | 10 AM | Adults $20 / Children 8+ $15

Call 631.537.9735 to make your reservation.

Walk Leader: Frank Quevedo, Executive Director, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).

Summer is the best time to view some of the fifty or more species of shorebirds that comb the beaches, sand flats, and marshes of Long Island. On this walk, we will visit Shinnecock Bay in Southampton and focus on plovers, yellowlegs, oystercatchers, and sandpipers as they feed by wading in shallow waters. So grab your binoculars and cameras, scopes, sunscreen, and a field guide to birds of Eastern North America, if you have one, and let’s hit the bay.

Ken Grille has been a published professional photographer for many years. His passion is Wildlife and nature photography and he has photographed birds and animals in many countries and states. His photos have been published in many local newspapers and magazines.

In lieu of supporting our annual Summerfest Gala, we invite past SummerFest supporter and longtime friends of SAC to join our new 2020 Patrons Circle. Your contribution will allow us to continue SAC’s year-round programming and serve as a critical economic driver that will lead this community out of these unsure times. Additionally, in return for your support or $10,000 or above, you will receive: - Two or Four seats to an intimate Appreciation Dinner to be held on Friday, August 21 in SAC’s Caesar Garden ($10,000/$25,000) - Recognition on summer 2020 Patrons Circle Wall inside SAC’s front gallery - Free admission to all SAC events this summer - A private tour of SAC’s Summer Exhibition 2020 VISION, in partnership with the New York Academy of Arts - Satisfaction in knowing that your contribution will significantly support this organization and our community during these challenging times
