Bring your binoculars and join us on a trek through Sandy Hook to observe the seals and waterfowl that overwinter in New Jersey. Seal and winter waterfowl walks are scheduled for 10 a.m. on the following days: Friday, Feb. 3, Wednesday, Feb. 15, Saturday, Feb. 25 and Monday, March 6.
Meet for the excursion at American Littoral Society headquarters, which is Building 18 on Officer's Row in the Fort Hancock section of Gateway National Recreation Area's Sandy Hook unit. If navigating by GPS, use 18 Hartshorne Drive, Highlands, NJ. From there participants will car caravan to multiple locations on Sandy Hook Unit.
The Society's experienced guides will not only help identify any creatures encountered during the trip, but are also knowledgeable about the history and ecology of Sandy Hook. Dress for the weather and expect to walk about a mile on sandy beaches. Cost is $5 per person.
Afterwards, take the chill off at Littoral Society Headquarters with snacks and warm beverages.
