Sagamore Hill is Still a Great Place for Long Islanders to Visit
The unusually mild weather on Long Island has provided an abundance of opportunities for new and returning visitors to Sagamore Hill National Historic. The weekends have seen a steady flow of families, joggers and dog walkers enjoying the grounds which are open year round from sunrise to sunset. Park Rangers and Volunteers are continuing to offer guided grounds walks, nature walks and specially designed talks on Wednesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Be sure to take advantage of these opportunities while the weather on Long Island remains favorable.
In 2012, Sagamore Hill staff and partners are gearing up for the kick-off of the 50th Anniversary of Sagamore Hill in July. We are also in the process of planning the Presidents Day weekend event on Saturday, February 18 which will highlight Theodore Roosevelt's abiding interest bird watching, as well as, National Park Week April 21-29, Memorial Day Weekend May 26-28 and the Independence Day Celebration on July 4.
