Mangano and Venditto Announce Community Cleanup at Tackapausha Preserve

Mineola, NY – Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Nassau County Legislator Michael Venditto today announced that a large volunteer effort to cleanup Seaford’s Tackapausha Preserve will take place Saturday, August 16th at 10am. Volunteers are asked to wear protective clothing (long pants and sleeves), and bring gloves.

“Tackapausha Preserve is a true oasis within Nassau County, a hidden jewel that can make visitors feel like they are walking among the forests of upstate New York,” said County Executive Mangano. “We must keep Tackapausha’s fragile environment pristine, and these types of efforts always make the difference.”

County Legislator Michael Venditto stated, “I am proud to represent a community so filled with pride and determination to do the right thing. I look forward to working with all of our volunteers in making this event a resounding success for this incredible treasure of the Nassau County preserve system.”

Tackapausha Preserve is an historic 84-acre sanctuary featuring oak forests, ponds, streams, small mammals and scores of bird species. The preserve includes five miles of marked trails to allow for visitors to see the entire preserve and all it has to offer, including streams and serene ponds. It is bordered by Merrick Road on the south and Jerusalem Avenue on the north. There is also a 3,000-square-foot museum on the property.
