Cape Cod Field Schools
Active Field Courses for Adults
Wellfleet Bay offers a wide variety of 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 Cape Cod National Seashore, Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, the islands off Chatham, and the waters of Cape Cod provide the setting for the courses.
Previous experience is not required-just an inquisitive mind and an eagerness to learn!
