Mashomack Preserve is offering programs for nature lovers this month. Call the program office at (631) 749-4219 to register or for further information.

Mashomack’s “Earth Day Celebration” is Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to noon. The event will combine exploring a few special places in Mashomack with a hands-on project to help protect the land and waters.

On Sunday, April 30 from 8 to 10 a.m. it’s “Birding for Beginners.” Know the difference between cardinals and blue jays, but not much else? Like the outdoors and enjoy learning new things? Come learn the basics of birding — how to focus binoculars, use a bird guide and gather clues to identify birds with Mashomack’s Tom Damiani who will lead this walk designed for people looking for beginning tips, or those who want to improve their current knowledge. Please bring binoculars.
