Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve

The third and last family hike in our summer series will be the longest of all, and perhaps the most exciting!  Our naturalist will lead you down the west side of Caumsett to the magnificent shoreline along Long Island Sound.  Hiking the beach, you will explore the marine biology and glacial geology that makes our Park so special. Investigate the 90-acre salt marsh, our nursery to the sea, and learn the environmental importance of these sensitive habitats.  This hike will cover approximately 5 mile in 3 hours, and is appropriate for families with children ages 7 and up.

Please wear appropriate shoes for hiking, bring water and snacks, and dress appropriately for off-road hiking(no shorts) and weather appropriate clothing. We meet at the information kiosk at 10:30 am. Reservations are required, no walk-ins. Contact Anne at 631-692-8488 or e-mail to kconeys@optonline.net by August 11th.

Each event has the standard $8.00 per vehicle use fee in effect.
