An Note from the Long Island Nature Organization:

We regret to inform you that, due to a series of recent events involving the coronavirus outbreak, we are canceling this year’s Long Island Natural History Conference (March 20-21, 2020).

We hope to be able to have most of the speakers and topics planned for this year’s event back next year (Friday, March 19 and Saturday, March 20, 2021) and we will be in touch by email later this month with important, time-sensitive information related to our “Conservation Updates” portion of the conference.

Please help us get the word out about the cancellation through your social media sites. For sponsorship and registration refunds, you have the option of carrying over your payment for 2021. Either way, contact Nancy Sorkow at Seatuck (nancy@seatuck.org) with your preference.

We will miss this annual fun gathering of the conservation community, which is something we all eagerly look forward to, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may create in your plans and schedules. Best wishes and stay healthy,
