Cape Cod Field Schools
Active Field Courses for Adults
Enjoy learning in the beautiful coastal setting of Cape Cod. Mass Audubon's Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary offers a wide variety of field courses for adults that focus on the unique coastal environment and wildlife of Cape Cod.
Field Schools emphasize active outdoor "in-the-field" experiences and are taught by professional naturalists and scientists. Courses are either 2, 3, or 4 days in length — providing just enough time to become immersed in the subject.
The beaches, woods, dunes, and wetlands of the 43,000-acre Cape Cod National Seashore, the 1,100-acre Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, the wilderness islands of Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, and the waters of Cape Cod will provide the setting for the courses. Previous experience is not required-just an inquisitive mind and an eagerness to learn!
