Get Outside, Get Moving

For those who enjoy hiking or paddling, here are two upcoming opportunities to do exactly that.

Eva Moore of the East Hampton Trails Preservation Society will lead a three-mile hike through Shadmoor State Park on Saturday at 9 a.m. The route includes dramatic views of the bluffs, a newly cut trail, and close-up views of World War II bunkers. The meeting place is the Shadmoor parking lot, approximately a mile east of downtown Montauk. Ms. Moore can be reached at 631-238-5134, or 631-681-4774 the day of the hike. This time of year the lot fills up quickly, so those who want to join should get there a little early.

Tuesday night, you can see the sunset in a different way, aboard a kayak or paddleboard in North Sea Harbor. From the Conscience Point boat ramp, the East End Explorer crew will launch at 6 p.m. and paddle around the point to discuss the shellfish hatchery. From there they will pass the Conscience Point National Wildlife Refuge en route to Serenity Pond, where a group floating meditation will prepare everyone for the sunset at one of the bay beaches. Along the way a nature guide will discuss the flora and fauna.

For those who do not have a kayak or paddleboard, they can be rented from East End Explorer. This program costs $15 per adult or $10 per child, but is free for South Fork Natural History Museum members. Registration is by emailing [email protected] or calling the museum.
