Join East Hampton Town’s Land Management staff this short 1.25-mile walk to learn about the southern pine beetle infestation in our area.  The group will trek along some low traffic residential streets and on County and Town preserved lands to view some of the effects of early suppression efforts in East Hampton which started in 2017.  Hikers will learn about local tree species, how to identify an active infestation, and other threats to the trees.

For nonmembers, there is a $15 fee for Adults and $10 fee for children for this program. This program fee will also provide non-members with free admission to the museum on a day of their choice. Members are free.

Advanced reservations are required for all events. To register for this program, please contact or call 631-537-9735.
