Chance to take an end-of-winter walk near Melville

March 15, 2018 by  

Everyone is invited to enjoy the Winter Water Walk at Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve in Huntington.

The winter weather may keep people inside and prevent them from getting the fresh air and exercise they need, so the Winter Walk offered by the park preserve is a way for people to take advantage of the more moderate late-winter temperatures while learning more about nature.

The park is a scenic area that offers watersports, nature walks and much more. Many birds and other wildlife make their home on the 1,750 acres of protected land. The preserve is offering the walk to allow participants to explore the beach, view the waterfowl in the area, and learn more about the ponds.

The four-mile walk may not be possible for all Melville Residents, but the leisurely pace and frequent breaks make it a journey that most people will find comfortable. The organizers suggest that all registrants bring along their binoculars. A camera is a good option as well, as there will be many potential opportunities for capturing images suitable for poster printing.

The walk will take place this Sunday, March 18 from 9:45 am to 1:00 pm at the Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve located at 25 Lloyd Harbor Road in Huntington. There is no fee for the event, but an $8 fee is charged for each car entering the park. Preregistration is required for the walk. Call (631) 423-1770 to register.
