Guided Nature Walk

Winter Animals: Tracks and Signs

Learn to identify and track the many signs of wild animals in the Preserve’s varied environments, including deer, fox, raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, birds, dogs, and coyotes. We’ll explore the animals’ ranges, behaviors, food sources, and shelters to gain an intimate understanding of these animals’ lives in the cold of Winter.

ABOUT THE SANDS POINT PRESERVE

The Sands Point Preserve on the original Guggenheim Estate embodies the grandeur and elegance that define the Gold Coast period of the early 20th century, when prominent American families built great mansions on large estates as summer retreats along the Long Island Sound. Sands Point was the famed “East Egg” of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.”

Today, the magnificent 216-acre park, including its historic mansions and the Phil Dejana Learning Center, is owned by Nassau County, NY, and is maintained and operated by the Sands Point Preserve Conservancy, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Conservancy provides year-round educational and cultural programs, seasonal celebrations, mansion tours, wellness activities as well as private/corporate event services.
