Across Dock Road from the Three Village Inn, the Ward Melville Heritage Organization’s pontoon boat “Discovery” departs from Stony Brook Marine Services located in Stony Brook, NY. The 27 passenger vessel cruises through the organization’s 88-acre wetlands preserve for a 1 1/2 hour tour. A naturalist on board explains the wildlife that passengers observe, the natural and human history of the area and the individuals and events that have shaped it!
