Hallock State Park Preserve

Start your Saturday morning with a walk at Hallock State Park Preserve's Long Island Sound beach while you support marine conservation and learn about local sea life. Scientists and volunteers from the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society lead our weekly beach walk. 

Along the way, we pick up marine debris and discuss current local issues of marine biology.  Along the way, you will learn how to collect relevant data and how to support marine conservation on your own. 

Participants of all ages are welcome. We meet at the Visitor Center, just off Sound Avenue, and then drive to the upper parking lot for a walk of about 1.5 miles. 

We provide trash pickers and buckets. Please bring you own gloves. Pre-registration is not necessary but suggested so that we may notify you if an event is cancelled due to severe weather.

The Great Backyard Bird Count Walk
Saturday, February 18, 2023 09:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Hallock State Park Preserve
( 3 mile walk) The Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society encourages people to count birds to tally wintering bird populations. Scientists use this data to help understand where populations of birds are in winter, declines, increases etc. It is a very successful (and fun) citizen science project so all birds observed will be entered into databases.
