We are thrilled that the South Bay Art Association is holding Repurposed & Reimagined Found Objects, an art exhibition, and auction to benefit CEED at the Washington Lodge on May 18. SBAA asked artists to create and donate works of art using found materials.  The results are sure to be amazing.  Join us to see the works and maybe you’ll go home with a new treasure and support CEED at the same time.

A glimpse of movement, a flash of color, a magical melody heard but once a year. Get ready for spring migration season with an overview of Long Island’s most sought after songbirds.  Many North American songsters are soon to arrive so get acquainted (or reacquainted!) with these colorful birds through photos featuring Long Island photographers. Katie will review the field marks and songs that are important for identification, talk about how to break down these songs into easier and more manageable learning groups, and highlight where to go to find these feathered beauties.
