Group Programs for Children and Young Adults
Whether you’re leading a scout group in search of badges, planning a birthday party, or running a homeschool program, the teacher naturalists at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary can help. Groups that visit our sanctuary participate in field walks, natural history presentations, and experiential research projects. Our teacher naturalists also travel to community venues to deliver engaging natural history lessons. We enjoy leading explorations of the Outer Cape beyond our sanctuary’s borders; these programs including dune hikes on the outer beaches, canoe trips on kettle ponds, and boat trips on Wellfeet Bay and Nauset Marsh.

Wellfleet Bay offers programs for all levels of Girl and Boy Scouts. We can design a program to fulfill the requirements of a specific badge or patch. Programs are offered after school or on weekends. As certified Boy Scout Merit Badge counselors, we are poised to help your Boy Scouts fulfill many of the requirements for their rank requirements and badges such as Bird Study, Environmental Science, Forestry, Fish and Wildlife Management, Insect Study, Mammal Study, Oceanography, Plant Science, Reptile and Amphibian Study, and Soil and Water Conservation. Ask us about opportunities for Eagle or Gold Award projects.
Wellfleet Bay welcomes the opportunity to host your child’s party in our beautiful LEED Platinum-certified nature center on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. We provide a seasonally appropriate program such as a wildlife hike, touch tank presentation, games, or crafts. You provide the cake and refreshments. Birthday parties are offered for children of Mass Audubon members celebrating their fourth birthday up to their 10th. We welcome special requests for tweens and teens.
