One last castle.
One last castle.

Good Morning!

• The North Fork Audubon Society is sponsoring a bus to the People’s Climate March in New York City on Sunday, September 21. Last week, National Audubon released a report on the devastating effects climate change will have on many species of birds. Many Long Island species are climate threatened, like the Piping Plover, the Common Loon and the White-breasted Nuthatch. The bus will be leaving Greenport at 7:30 a.m., with stops in Southold, Mattituck and Riverhead. The bus will return to the North Fork from New York City at 4:30 p.m. The cost is $26 per person. For more information or to reserve a seat, please email eastendclimatebus@gmail.com or call 631.477.6456. For more information about the march, including the route, visit http://peoplesclimate.org/march/.

• The Southampton Review has announced its first-ever Robert Reeves $1,000 Prize in Comic Fiction, judged by author and editor Daniel Menaker. They’re not telling participants what they’re looking for— other than that it should be 5,000 words or less — because the comic impulse is so widely and variously expressed in fiction that it resists definition. The entry fee is $15 per submission and the deadline is Oct. 31. Winners will be notified on or before Jan. 15, 2015, and will be honored at the Manhattan launch of TSR: The Southampton Review’s Spring 2015 issue. Entries can be submitted online here.

• The North Fork Alliance, a group dedicated to reducing youth substance use on the North Fork, will be holding their first meeting of the new school year on Wed., Sept. 17 at 10 a.m. at the Mattituck-Laurel Library.

• The East Hampton Town Board will discuss deer management and airport noise, among other topics, at its 10 a.m. work session at town hall today. Their full agenda is online here.

• The Riverhead Town Board will hold its regular meeting tonight at 7 p.m. No agenda is online yet, but when it is, it will be available here.

• As of 8 a.m., it’s 60 degrees in Riverhead, 62 degrees in East Hampton and 60 degrees in Cutchogue. We’re expecting highs around 70 degrees across the region today.

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light here today.
