Every year at the turning of the seasons, the American Littoral Society conducts a public Equinox Walk around our headquarters building in the Sandy Hook Unit of Gateway National Recreation Area. In 2020, due to safety precautions linked to Covid-19, we are inviting you to join us for a virtual walk to welcome the beginning of Autumn.
Join Littoral Society hosts, Jeff Dement, Fish Tagging Director, and Nicole Haines, Education Director, as they guide you through the flora, fauna, history and sights of Sandy Hook, NJ on one of two days each year when the day is divided equally between daylight and darkness.
Attendees will meet Manny Royle, morale officer for the Littoral Society, learn about the founding of the Littoral Society in 1961, hear some history of the lighthouse that still shines over Sandy Hook, find out where our Osprey go for their winter vacation, and discover why the Native American tribe that called coastal New Jersey home referred to September as the Month of Yellow Flowers.
Come along with us and watch your step or you may carry home a Canada Goose souvenir on the sole of your shoe!
Thursday, Sept. 17, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 22, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
