Tackapausha Museum and Preserve is operated by the Nassau County Department of Recreation and Parks. In the middle of densely populated Seaford on the South Shore, is an historic and beautiful 84-acre sanctuary of oak forests, ponds and streams, small mammals and scores of bird species, all of which can 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. An interesting selection of Long Island wildlife and their habitats are on display with special presentations focusing on various subjects.
