Calling All Citizen Scientists!

Seatuck is actively involved in various wildlife surveys and other "citizen science" projects. Some are Seatuck-initiated efforts to gather baseline wildlife information about the Scully Estate and other properties; others are regional, statewide or nationwide programs in which Seatuck participates, assuming responsibility for a certain location or region on Long Island. These include the annual Captree Christmas Bird Count and the NY DEC Waterfowl Survey, among others. Volunteers are invited to participate in all wildlife surveys in which Seatuck is involved - no experience is necessary. Many of these projects are conducive to incorporating educational components and can include class or private group participation.
