SPEAKER: Dennis Fleury with Live Animals
TOPIC: Tackapausha Wildlife
This month’s program will be presented by Dennis Fleury, the site director at Nassau County’s Tackapausha Museum and Preserve, located in Seaford. The South Shore Audubon Society has had a long and rewarding relationship with Tackapausha.
Dennis is a font of first-hand knowledge about our local species, and he will be bringing representative live birds (including an owl) and other animals from the museum to explain their life-histories. He will tell the stories of why they have to be kept in captivity and will also talk about upcoming Tackapausha programs. He is a state-licensed wildlife rehabilitator who has been rescuing and advocating for animals since he was a youth. His programs are always lively, informative, and extremely enjoyable.
PARENTS PLEASE NOTE: WE WELCOME CHILDREN! In order to make it possible to bring your children, as this is a school night, we are reversing the general meeting’s order this month. We will begin the presentation promptly at 7:30, break for refreshments at about 8:15, and have our committee reports at about 8:30. Dennis is one of the most outstanding wildlife educators on Long Island, and can answer almost any question your child may have about the animals he brings and about our wildlife in general.
