Mount Loretto Birds of the Meadow
Howie Fischer's goal is to help you find birds which specialize in the meadow habitat such as Orchard Orioles, Willow Flycatchers and Warbling Vireos. These birds are unique to Staten Island and this Unique Area has the best Staten Island meadow habitat that supports these and other species.
Meet in the fenced-in parking lot on Hylan Blvd opposite the CYO Bldg.

Conference House Beach and Woods
This activity includes a walk along the beachfront at low tide and concludes with a stroll through the woodlands. In addition to examining evidence of the recent and long term history of the area, we’ll study the geology of the beach as well as the flotsam and jetsam accumulated at the high tide lines to see what nature's debris has to tell us.
Meet at the parking lot at the end of Hylan Blvd. on the left.
