This is the organization that runs the South Fork nature center. If you're heading out East or live in the area, it's a great place to visit and connect to many like minded nature folks. SOFO is plugged into many local natural history conservation and monitoring efforts. And they offer a multitude of events for children, families, and individuals who want to expand their knowledge of local parks and their natural history.
They've also partnered with other organization to offer marine outings as well. The nature center offers items to purchase from books to t-shirts, and more. It's also surrounded by a restoring grassland for viewing on the back porch. The staff is super friendly and able to answer all your questions.
