Kids Culture for Aug. 4, 2022

Thu, 08/04/2022 - 09:05

Creatures of the Air and the Sea

The Quogue Wildlife Refuge will be at the Montauk Point Lighthouse on Wednesday afternoon to introduce children of all ages to some of its most intriguing winged residents — a screech owl and a red-tailed hawk.

The two drop-in sessions are from noon to 1 and 1:30 to 2:30, and are free with Lighthouse admission. Additional information can be found at

Also on Wednesday, kids can dive under the water — figuratively, of course — to learn about sharks from the South Fork Natural History Museum's shark research team. Educators will share their latest research and answer any questions the kids have about these often-misunderstood sea creatures.

Registration is required ahead of time, and can be done by phone at 631-537-9735 or by email to [email protected]. The program will be held at the museum in Bridgehampton.
