Exploration, adventure, hands-on learning, and FUN! If you’re a kid on the East End, then you want to hang with the Group in the summertime. We search for fish and crabs, hike and bike along miles of wooded and coastal trails, paddle in some of the most scenic waterways on the East End, and begin to know countless local plants and animals.

For more information, please contact Steve Biasetti or Anita Wright at 631-765-6450, ext. 205 or 206 respectively, or e-mail us at sbiasetti@eastendenvironment.org or acwright@eastendenvironment.org.

Programs fill quickly! Registrations are first come, first served. Parents/guardians are responsible for all transportation. All sessions are $400 per child ($350 for GFEE members & returning participants). Please inquire about discounts for multiple siblings.

Pondhawks (Ages 8-10)

PONDHAWKS is a great program for your budding young naturalist! Each day we visit a different habitat and get up-close with the plants and animals that live there. Children become active nature detectives, using dip nets, aquatic tanks, bug boxes, shovels, and field guides to learn about life in the pond, beach, salt marsh, and woods. This program aspires to spark your child’s interest in the outdoors and plant the seed for a lifetime of stewardship and love of nature. Due to popular demand, we are offering four PONDHAWKS sessions this summer!
