Nature Exploration at Cranberry Bog County Nature Preserve with North Shore Land Alliance
Saturday, October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 a.m.


Join North Shore Land Alliance and Andy Greller for a nature exploration at Cranberry Bog County Nature Preserve in Riverhead.  Long Island trail lovers will explore this magnificent 165-acre preserve, complete with abundant fresh water, a diversity of wildlife and carnivorous plants when it is at its most beguiling.

This 165-acre preserve is part of the drainage system of the Peconic River and serves as a natural reservoir for our fresh water supply. It allows for hiking that includes sights of the Little Peconic River, various plants, birds, reptiles, and other wildlife creatures. Within the preserve lies Sweezy Pond and Cheney Pond, which is surrounded by a White-Cedar swamp with trees as large as 16″ in diameter. It is a haven of natural, unspoiled beauty on the edge of a rapidly growing urban center.

Our Walks in the Woods are free and open to the public.  Registration is required!  For more information about the North Shore Land Alliance Walks in the Woods Program, please contact Jane Jackson at (516) 922-1028 or email
