Walking tour of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
1 Bungtown Road, Cold Spring Harbor, $5 per person

Monday, March 19, from 2 to 3:30

We will be guided by one of their young scientist staff members who will talk about his or her experiments and lead us on a walk around the property, which includes an arboretum and beautiful views but the terrain is hilly and can be difficult for people.

There is lots of information about the Laboratory and its accomplishments at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory website

PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL NANCY MARR WITH YOUR RESERVATION BY THURSDAY MARCH 15

In case you don't use a GPS, here are directions. The estimated time, according to Google (from Port Jefferson (for instance) would be about 50 minutes.

From East: Take the Long Island Expressway (Route 495) west to Exit 44N which is the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway (Route 135) north. Take Exit 14E toward Woodbury. Turn Right onto Jericho Turnpike (NY-25 E). Make a left onto South Woods Road and follow to its end. Make a right onto Cold Spring Road and merge onto Route 25A eastbound. A sign marking Bungtown Road precedes the entrance to the Laboratory. Make a left at the traffic light. You will see a lighted CSHL sign and a large gold Victorian house by the entrance. You have gone a little too far if you pass route 108. (Can also go by Northern State if it is closer.) ____________________________________________________________________________
