Family Astronomy and Owl Prowl Evening

Family Astronomy and Owl Prowl Evening

Family Astronomy and Owl Prowl Evening

Did you know that generally clearer skies make the cooler months the best times to view the night sky?  Join CEED on December 10th for a Family Owl Prowl Astronomy Night to see our view of the Universe from Earth.  We are fortunate to have our friends and experts from Vanderbilt Planetarium travel down to the South Shore for these amazing opportunities.

The fall is the perfect month to view Saturn and Jupiter, two of our large unique gaseous planets.  We might also have the opportunity to observe the Pleiades star cluster and some of the Leoinids meteor shower, along with several constellations.

We have double packed the night by adding our popular Owl Prowl led by our own Eric Powers.  He is the best of the best with owl calls and last prowl was able to call an Eastern Screech Owl.  We also have a family of Great Horned owls on the CEED property.  If the native wild owls choose to hide, that is okay, because Aria, a Eurasian Eagle owl and Jim MacDougal will be joining us as well.

Atlantic Marine Conservation Society and Cold Stun Sea Turtles

Atlantic Marine Conservation Society and Cold Stun Sea Turtles

Atlantic Marine Conservation Society and Cold Stun Sea Turtles

Did you know that 5 of the 7 species of sea turtles spend summers in our Long Island waters? Two are listed as endangered and two are listed as threatened according to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Since turtles are cold-blooded reptiles, they are unable to survive in our offshore waters during the colder months.  November and December are important months for helping out with sea turtle sightings.

Please join us for a talk on Wednesday, November 16th at 6:30 p.m. to find out what cold stun means and how that affects sea turtles.  Our friends from the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society will also show you how to spot these turtles on our shores and what to do if you find one.

Join us to learn more and hopefully be a part of the team to help protect these turtles. It’s super easy, all you have to do is walk the shores periodically.

This event is free to attend, but both CEED and Atlantic Marine Conservation Society are nonprofit organizations and rely on donations to continue our work and welcome any donations at the event.

Forest Bathing and Sound Healing Retreat

Forest Bathing and Sound Healing Retreat

Forest Bathing and Sound Healing Retreat

Forest Bathing is a practice developed in Japan to alleviate tech-burnout. Called Shinrin-Yoku in Japanese, it was developed in the 1980’s as a way of embracing our natural world to improve human health.  In forest bathing, participants follow a structured method of using all five senses to experience nature.

Forest Therapy Guide Linda Lombardo will lead participants on a peaceful journey in nature, taking the time to feel the energy in the forest and connect the body with the natural energy.

Sound healing uses sound and vibrations to initiate relaxation and wellness.  Often, interchanged or used in conjunction with vibration therapy, sound therapy is an ancient method using natural vibrations either in proximity or on the body to initiate a mind and body healing process.

Sound Vibrational Practioner Erika Haberkorn uses sounds and vibrations to provide a meditational experience to refresh and renew the body and connect back with the natural vibrations in nature.

This power-packed combo will leave you refreshed and relaxed and ready to take on life’s challenges.

Join us on Sunday, December 11th at 2:00 p.m. for this incredible experience.

Is it a Screech Owl or is it Ranger Eric?

Is it a Screech Owl or is it Ranger Eric?

Is it a Screech Owl or is it Ranger Eric?

Is this sound a real screech owl … or is it Ranger Eric?  It’s so hard to tell.

Eric is an amazing birdcall imitator, and his imitation of screech owl calls is legendary. Screech owls are one of the common owls on Long Island and we often see and hear them on our Owl Prowls. So is this Eric or Screech Owl?  Check below for the answer …

On Friday, Oct. 21, join CEED and Ranger Eric and the Vanderbilt Planetarium a night of owls and meteors …

In addition to owls, there is also a very good chance of seeing shooting stars, as we’ll be right in the middle of the Orionid Meteor Shower.  We encourage you to bring your own telescopes if you wish, binoculars, and even cameras to practice long-exposure photography. If cloudy, we will switch to a digital presentation for your enjoyment.

The recording above is, in fact, a real screech owl.  But come to our Owl Prowl and you’ll see how close Ranger Eric can get.  Close your eyes and you won’t be able to tell!
