Looking for something to do on the North Fork this weekend? Northforker has you covered.
Here are five events set for this weekend. As always, visit northforker.com/events for additional happenings.
Help save sea turtles by participating in the 19th annual Run for the Ridley 5K in Riverhead on Saturday, October 22.
You can become a sponsor or a runner to help the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation prepare for the upcoming cooler months when sea turtles can become paralyzed by frigid sea water, a process also called cold stunned.
Enjoy a scenic run along Riverhead’s downtown and help save cold-stunned sea turtles at the 18th annual Run for the Ridley. (more…)
When the glistening dorsal fins first sliced through the water, Debra Iannelli thought they belonged to sharks.
Iannelli instantly felt a “fear factor” — after all, she was six feet away on a paddleboard and, at a full 300 yards out into Long Island Sound near Orient Point, she was in their territory.
Luckily, however, Iannelli then noticed the fins were too curved to be those of sharks. Instead, they belonged to a pod of about 60 bottlenose dolphins, splashing around in Friday’s late-afternoon sunlight, searching for food. (more…)
Three beluga whales traveling from Canada were spotted in Shoreham last night and could be on their way for a rare North Fork visit. (more…)
