New York, Long Island,


Registration is required for this activity.


Were you aware that the glaciers of the last ice age essentially formed the land mass of Long Island? While not as dramatic as some of the glacially-sculpted formations upstate (e.g., the cliffs of the 'Gunks), the hills of North-coast L.I. are still a geologically-significant feature of the local landscape. On this hike, we will follow the "glacial moraines" (to be explained) at their widest point on the Island, from the village of Cold Spring Harbor down to West Hills. Expect a "brisk but compassionate" pace, with just a few brief stops - and some discussion about the earth's history and its somewhat surprising impacts on our local area. COVID-19 PROCEDURES (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY): DO NOT participate if you have symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (such as fever or cough), have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or are quarantined for potential exposure to COVID-19. Those who are at higher risk of getting sick from COVID-19 or who may expose family members who are at higher risk should consider not participating . This hike is limited to 10 people including the leader and co-leader, and requires advance registration. If you register and are unable to attend, please cancel your registration in advance so that your space can be provided to someone else. Unregistered persons will not be able to participate in the hike. All hikers are required to carry face coverings (masks) from the start to the finish of the hike. In the event that social distancing becomes challenging or a group member shows signs and/or symptoms of illness including cold symptoms, cough, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, or fever all group members are required to don their masks. All hikers must have hand sanitizer with 60% or greater alcohol content. Avoid sharing food, gear etc. Registration includes filing of an "enhanced" online waiver.
