Erosion Field Trip

Build and test a nature-based solution to reduce erosion that you learned about in class. Catch aquatic wildlife to find out how erosion impacts their habitats, and look for signs of erosion in the field.

Erosion is a part of a two-part program series with 1x in-class program and 1x field trip program. You may choose to book only the in-class or field trip program, but we recommend booking both for deeper engagement.

This field trip is available at all of our Metro South Sanctuaries which include the Blue Hills Trailside Museum, the Museum of American Bird Art, Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary, and Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary.
