The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service manages ten National Wildlife Refuges on Long Island, totaling nearly 6,500 acres. This network of public land is set aside to protect and benefit wildlife. Long Island’s strategic location – situated in the Long Island Pine Barrens and along the Atlantic Flyway – provides important nesting, wintering and migratory stop-over areas for hundreds of bird species. Each refuge in the complex is unique and provides a necessary component to wildlife survival. Come and take an armchair tour of these local refuges  with Visitor Services Manager Jody Demeyere, then make a plan to visit  the brand new, LEED-certified Visitor Center at Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge in Shirley this fall!  For info: northforkaudubon.org or Diana 917-623-5373
