Locals to find out what lurks in the Connetquot River

March 3, 2014 by  

This month, interested parties can find out exactly what lives within the Connetquot River in the Long Island region.

The Friends of Connetquot at Connetquot River State Park Preserve will present “Amphibians and Reptiles of Long Island” as the first of the 2014 series of lectures. The program is expected to attract participants from nearby communities such as Bohemia and Fairport.

The special guest speaker will be Ariana Newell. She is a biologist for New York State Parks covering both Long Island and New York City and will present the exploration of the secret lives of reptiles and amphibians. The history of these creatures will be presented, along with the many challenges involved in today’s existence.

Interesting facts include that salamanders spend the first several weeks of the year looking for appropriate ponds for laying their eggs.

Flyer printing will create communication to advise the residents and visitors of this fascinating presentation. The flyers can be distributed from the venue and from other high traffic points. They can also be direct mailed via database of clients or associates.

The ‘Amphibians and Reptiles of Long Island’ is scheduled for March 15 at 1:30 pm. It will be held at the Connetquot River State Park Preserve on Sunrise Highway in the main building. Admission is free. For questions, please call 631-581-1072.
