ISLIP—There were ghosts, goblins and plenty of cartoon characters on South Bay Avenue in Islip last Saturday morning. No, these costume-clad prowlers weren’t out trick-or-treating early; they were just taking part in the annual 5K Owl Prowl that is sponsored each year by the Seatuck Environmental Association. The event, which begins and ends at the Scully Environmental Center, is a major fundraiser for the organization.
