This weekend in Bridgehampton, it's all about wildlife — dragonflies, damselflies, and birds of prey.

Saturday is Dragonfly Day at the South Fork Natural History Museum, co-sponsored by the Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt. From 10 a.m. to noon, participants will learn about dragonflies, damselflies, and their wetland habitat. The friends, it so happens, will gather for a meeting on Monday at 6 p.m. via Zoom.

At 1 p.m. on Sunday, birds of prey that have been rehabilitating at the Evelyn Alexander Wildlife Rescue Center in Hampton Bays will be on hand at Marders nursery on Snake Hollow Road. "Learn about these amazing creatures and enjoy this unique opportunity to see them up close," urges a release.
