Overview

A hidden delight operated by Seatuck Environmental Association for the Town of Islip. Find peace and quiet in the secluded butterfly garden or at pond-side benches, where songbirds and frogs compete with ducks for attention. Boardwalks lead into marshland, or visit the Indian tepee, the living beehive or our museum space. Seatuck runs tours as well educational programs for children year round.
