“This event enables SoFo and the other groups to reach out to the community with educational activities and nature walks that hopefully will enrich the lives of many people, especially our children,” said Frank Quevedo, the Executive Director South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).
On Saturday, May 2nd from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., several East End organizations are coming together to celebrate the environment during the 6th annual Peconic Family Fun Day, sponsored by Hamptons.com.
