Seatuck's signature events include the EcoCarnival, the Seatuck Birding Challenge and the 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.
Bats & Brews Benefit
The Bats & Brews Benefit is a fundraising event that features a presentation on bats and craft-brewed beer from Long Island's best breweries. The benefit, which also includes food from local eateries and music by The Decoys, has become a favorite local event!

Seatuck's Eco-Carnival is one of the premier Earth Day celebrations on Long Island. It was created in 2010 as part of the grand opening of the Suffolk County Environmental Center. Since then, it has become a favorite spring fixture, drawing thousands each year. The event features 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.
