Seatuck's signature events include the EcoCarnival, Seatuck Birding Challenge and our Bats & Brews Benefit. Each of these unique events has grown into a beloved annual happening. In addition to generating income for the organization, these events also give Seatuck a venue for introducing new people to its many other offerings and afford corporate sponsors the opportunity to support Seatuck while reaching thousands of conservation-minded Long Islanders.
Seatuck Birding Challenge
In 2014, Seatuck launched the Long Island's first island-wide birding event, the Seatuck Birding Challenge. Participating teams spread out across Long Island, from Jamaica Bay to Riverhead, to find as many birds as possible during 12-hour window. The event includs expert birders, high school teams and families.
Seatuck's Bats & Brews Benefit, our annual premier fundraiser, features craft beer from the best breweries on Long Island, live music, presentations on bats and a top notch silent auction! This year a LIVE VIRTUAL EVENT!
Seatuck's Eco-Carnival is the premier Earth Day celebration on Long Island. Created in 2010 as part of the grand opening of the Suffolk County Environmental Center. Over the last decade, it has become a favorite spring fixture, drawing thousands each year. Featuring a series of hands-on nature stations, nature-inspired arts-n-crafts, games and booths, as well as music, food and ice cream. It's eco-friendly, nature-based fun for whole family! The event is held in cooperation with Suffolk County and the Town of Islip.
