The mission of the Four Harbors Audubon Society is to advocate education and conservation efforts for the enjoyment, preservation, and restoration of birds, wildlife, and habitat in our Long Island communities.
In conjunction with “NY Pause” and in order to protect the health of our friends and members during the COVID-19 outbreak, Four Harbors Audubon Society has chosen to put its walks and events on hiatus until the mandates have been lifted. We will be leaving the information for our walks and events on our website in the hopes that we will receive word from the state that the restrictions have been lifted, but will cancel the week prior to the walk or event if the mandate is still in place.
At this time, we recommend following National Audubon Society guidelines for safer birding: bring hand sanitizer, keep a minimum distance of 6 feet from other people, and do not share binoculars or spotting scopes. In addition, if you arrive at a crowded park, choose a different park, a different trail or return another time or day to visit. Avoid narrow paths and choose instead large open areas or parks with wide pathways, or less-used areas and consider going out with just one other person for safety, while staying separate by at least 6’. Thank you and safe birding.
