In the middle of densely populated Seaford on the South Shore is a historic and beautiful 84-acre sanctuary of oak forests, ponds, streams, small mammals, and scores of bird species, all of which can be viewed via five miles of clearly marked trails. In addition, the preserve incorporates a 3,000-square-foot museum with displays about the ecology of Long Island, as well as animal exhibits and shows and interactive activities for children. The museum is also available for birthday parties on weekends. The Tackapausha Preserve, the first tract of preserve land acquired by Nassau County in 1938, is one of the most popular preserves on the South Shore.
