Winter 2020 Update


We are delighted to announce that the North Fork Audubon Society (NFAS) is taking Turtleback Farm Programs under its wing! Both organizations engage the North Fork community towards conservation action through environmental stewardship, ”community scientist” (aka citizen science) projects, exploration, and education. The Eastern End of Long Island is an Audubon-designated Important Bird Area. Together, TBF and NFAS will continue to work towards protecting birds and their habitats.

Our home base will be located at the Roy Latham Nature Center at Inlet Pond County Park in Greenport, the home of the North Fork Audubon Society. Although many of our programs will take place at the Nature Center (aka The Red House), we will continue to run programs at various host sites as we have in the past. As of February 14th, all program registration will be through the NFAS. Although we will post programs and events here, please refer to their website for additional program information. North Fork Audubon Society 


Although it will not be required, we encourage the TBF community to become members of the North Fork Audubon Society. Members will receive discounts on all programs, with some programs free for members. We will hold events for members, like Birds & Bagels, a weekend morning meet-up for bagels followed by birding activities. Members may also receive discounts at the annual native plant sale and other retail-related fund-raisers. The Annual Membership is $25 for Individuals and $30 for Families. BECOME A MEMBER
