About this book

For more than two years, a team of Newsday reporters and photographers explored the woods and waters of a world most visitors to Long Island never see. As they waded through bogs, kayaked on the island's four rivers, hiked through pathless forests, and ventured into the Atlantic in shark cages, they made surprising discoveries: insect-eating plants, tropical fish, exotic lizards, birds of prey nesting along golf courses, and much more. Newsday's Guide to Long Island's Natural World is the result – a colourful and authoritative guide to the natural environment of Long Island. Taking full advantage of colour photographs and detailed maps, this book guides readers in a fascinating exploration of Long Island's fields and forests, beaches, and backyards.
