The Edith G. Read Wildlife Sanctuary and Nature Center is a 179-acre park located on the shore of the Long Island Sound, along a migratory flyway. This sanctuary is home to a great diversity of marine life. In winter months, the 85-acre lake, a mixture of salt and fresh water, hosts over 5,000 ducks. The sanctuary has been recognized by the national Audubon Society of New York as an Important Bird Area (IBA). There are three miles of trails through forest and field. Along the half-mile of publicly accessible shore, the intertidal habitat harbors a wide diversity of plants and animals. Environmental education programs are offered to schools, scouts and other groups by advance reservation. Group size is limited to 30, and there is a modest fee based on group size and length of program. Topics can be tailored to the needs and interests of the group and include: intertidal ecology, marine biology, plant science and ornithology.
