June in Jamaica Bay

posted May 31, 2019, 7:45 AM by District 22   [ updated May 31, 2019, 7:45 AM ]

With June we know we're safe. Gone are the wonky weather days. There's no way it's going to snow (right?!) We are out of the woods, or in our case, into the woods. Summer is here, and no one can tell us otherwise. The weather is good, and we're ready for an adventure.

What's great is that there are practically limitless ways to seek adventure in Jamaica Bay. The free kayaking program will be in full swing with Ranger-led opportunities for complete beginners and for those as young as six years old.  Campgrounds are open, and visitors can spend the night under the stars. Rangers are on staff throughout the Bay to lead walks and workshops on birds, turtles, and other marine life. We'll take in the Full Strawberry Moon on June 16th and the Summer Solstice Sunset on June 21st. And we'll kick off the summer with the first in a series of Campfire Fridays on June 28th.

So however you choose to experience Jamaica Bay this summer, on horseback, at the archery range, surfing, fishing, star-gazing, or smooth-sailing, there is an adventure to be had. Spend June with us, and you can have a summer vacation in your own backyard.
Hummingbird Hide and Seek
Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge
June 1 and June 15
2PM - 3PM
Hike out into the North Garden to hear about the amazing journey of the Ruby-throated hummingbird. Learn how they build their nests, what they eat (and who eats them), and other fun facts that make them so special. Then spend time looking through a scope, trying to observe them in their natural habitat. All ages welcome. Dress for the weather.
Diamondback Terrapin Walks
Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge
June 6-8 and June 20-22
3PM - 4PM
Come along as we head out on the West Pond Trail in search of nesting diamondback terrapins. We will talk about these amazing turtles, their annual journey to the shores of the Wildlife Refuge, and our efforts to help their offspring make it safely back to the water.
