Reptiles on Display
The South Fork Natural History Museum will open its doors Saturday for a day of free activities in honor of Earth Day. For kids, there will be a live reptile, amphibian, and insect show, Erik’s Reptile Edventure, from 10 to 11 a.m. The show offers a chance to see, touch, and learn about lizards, snakes, turtles, tree frogs, toads, salamanders, and even an alligator. Reservations for this one might be a good idea.
Families can tour the museum, walk the grounds, and check out a site-specific installation by the museum’s artist in residence, Christine Sciulli, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum is in Bridgehampton on the Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Turnpike.
For the Birds
In Montauk, the Concerned Citizens of Montauk, the Montauk Playhouse, and the Group for the East End are teaming up to bring kids a craft program with a focus on birds. The fun goes down from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Playhouse. Kids who take part in this free program will get their own “birdie bling bag.”
Swaddle Waddle, a New York City program combining developmental, musical, and educational activities, will head to the Children’s Museum of the East End in Bridgehampton on Saturday to offer an introduction in advance of a series of classes to be held at CMEE this summer. The class, at 11 a.m., will have kids 4 months to 4 years old shaking, noise making, stretching, and working with parachutes, flashcards, and more. The cost is $15, $5 for members.
Sima the storyteller will sail into CMEE on Sunday for a free story time at 11 a.m., sponsored by Cultural Care Au Pair. Advance registration is suggested for museum events.
