Indian Island Park Hosts Earth Day Celebration


Indian Island County Park in Riverhead will host a variety of interactive exhibits, events and entertainment as part of an Earth Day celebration on Sunday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Activities will include guided nature walks, free kayak demonstrations, a historical perspective of Long Island’s indigenous population, marine life exhibits and scavenger hunts.

“Suffolk County has the largest local government parkland system in the nation,” said Suffolk County Legislator Jay Schneiderman, who previously served as chairman of the legislature’s Parks and Recreation Committee. “Many of these properties are of critical ecological significance.”

The 275-acre park is situated at the mouth of the Peconic River and is open to the public year-round.

The Earth Day event is free of charge and open to all ages. For more information, call 852-8400 or 854-4949.
