You may be asking yourself...isn't this the Massapequa Patch? Then why is this week's Viewfinder focusing on , a beautiful 84-acre nature sanctuary located in Seaford?
Well, it turns out that the preserve was named after Chief Tackapausha of the Massapequa Band of Algonkian-speaking Native peoples, according to the South Shore Estuary Reserve Council. We here at Patch think that's reason enough to feature Tackapausha Preserve as our photo gallery of the week. It also helps that the preserve is right on the Massapequa/Seaford border.
While the Tackapausha Museum has been closed since August of 2010 for renovations, the preserve itself is still open daily for nature lovers to enjoy. So with the weather so lovely as of late, why not take advantage and go for a stroll?
But, until you do, you can take a gander at these pictures that show off the natural wonder of the Tackapausha Preserve.
