"Ranger Eric" to Lead Birding Walk at Caleb Smith State Preserve

Biologist and outdoorsman Eric Powers will conduct a birding walk at Caleb Smith State Park Preserve on Jericho Turnpike in Smithtown on Saturday, May 9, from 9 to 10:30 a.m.  Pre-registration is required as space is limited. Call (631) 265-1054 or (631) 366-3288. The free event is part of the 2015 Lecture Series sponsored by the Friends of Caleb Smith Preserve, and will involve walking about two miles. Walkers are urged to wear sensible footwear and bring binoculars and a camera with a telephoto lens, if they are able.  Having extensively explored the historic Caleb Smith park, “Ranger Eric” - as students know him - will lead attendees to some of his favorite locations to see birds and other wildlife, as well as highlighting plants and freshwater springs, the life-blood of the Park.   A former park ranger in Colorado, Eric Powers led nature hikes until he joined the US Peace Corps as an environmental education officer for two years. In 2005 he started his dream company “Your Connection to Nature” [YC2N] dedicated to meaningful environmental education programs and eco-tourism.
