Conservation on Parade is back! Enjoy the Free Family Event Sat. Aug. 3, 3-6 p.m. at the Parade Grounds. Enter through the Demonstration Garden.
Learn about local wildlife through hands-on discovery. Have an up-close visit with a bird of prey, touch turtles and snakes, meet frogs, see and touch feathers, furs, and many other natural items.
Don’t miss face painting and an even bigger ice cream truck, and stop by for wine, beer, and lemonade. No dogs, please.
Also, there is a second opportunity to see, “Take Back the Harbor”. The 39-minute film will screen in a continuous loop at the movie theater during Conservation on Parade. The documentary follows students from the Harbor School in New York City as they work in New York Harbor and travel to Fishers Island to learn about growing oysters as part of the Billion Oyster Project, an unprecedented program to restore once-bountiful oysters to New York Harbor.
