Join us for our “Teachings from the Trail” walking series as we venture out onto the trails of Wareham’s beautiful conservation areas and learn about different aspects of the natural world from our awesome volunteer naturalists! You can sign up for just one of the walks in this series or all of them!
This series includes:
Birding with Mike Perrin – Grab your binoculars and join us as we explore Mass Audubon’s Great Neck Wildlife Sanctuary and listen and look for the birds of winter with naturalist Mike Perrin. Birders of all levels are welcome!
Basic Botany with Justin Cifello – We often think of winter as bleak and lifeless, but there’s always something to see. On this walk, naturalist Justin Cifello will guide us through some introductory steps to plant ID, and we’ll explore the relationships between various plants, fungi, and animals; including humans!
Winter Bug Walk with Blake Dinius – Although they may be a bit harder to find, there are still tiny critters to be found in our winter woods! Take a walk around Douglas S. Westgate Conservation Area as Entomologist Blake Dinius leads us in an exploration of the insects of winter.
Talking about Trees with Chance Perks – Many of their leaves may have fallen, but they are still standing! Join tree expert Chance Perks as he teaches us about the fascinating forest at Tweedy and Barnes Conservation area.
