Support the Brookhaven Wildlife Center by helping raise money for Pooh the resident Black Bear.
According to the Brookhaven Wildlife Center, Pooh says: “I am getting older, I am 19 years old now and have been struggling over the past few months, getting old is hard on us bears too. I have Osteoarthritis and it causes me pain and stiffness and I limp when I walk. Thankfully my fantastic veterinarians found a medication, and my wonderful caretakers give it to me when I need it. It helps me to feel better and it doesn’t hurt as much when I walk. The problem is it costs A LOT of money…..$400 a month!

We had such a wonderful time at Sweetbriar Nature Center in Smithtown this past Saturday. We saw some familiar faces and enjoyed a lot of new ones too.
Sweetbriar everyday connects the community with Wildlife and their grounds are beautiful. At the Butterfly and Bird Wildlife Festival there were talented craftsmanship vendors, family entertainment, Long Island Children’s Authors, animal rescues and so much more…

Since I was a little girl I loved visiting the South Shore Nature Center. I grew up on the south shore in Oakdale and I went here often to go for nature walks. If you take Bayview Avenue more south you will end up at the East Islip Marina. Around this area you will see a lot of deer.
