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

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.

Fall Nature of Science Series Coming to CEED! Be Sure to Pre-Register!

Fall Nature of Science Series Coming to CEED! Be Sure to Pre-Register!

We’re excited to announce that we’re creating Nature of Science, a wonderful outdoor-based science/biology program for grades 1-6 to begin this fall. Five week sessions, taught by two of Long Island’s most experienced and exciting outdoor teachers, are designed using the New York curriculum standards for Science, English, Language arts, Math, and Social Studies, which will help build your child’s foundational knowledge to supplement regular school instruction or be a significant part of a home-school program. 

We’ll have the details very soon, but don’t forget, our Summer Nature Experience was booked solid and had a waiting list. If you think this is something your students could benefit from this fall, please click here to email us. We’ll make sure you are notified as soon as we’re ready to sign up students.
