Although the Nature Center remains closed, Felix Neck is still providing outdoor nature explorations for children, families, and adults this summer.

In addition to the sanctuary's trails being open, we're excited to offer outdoor versions of all your favorite programs for your family or Quaran-team! (A "quaran-team" is a bubble of people who create their own tight-knit social circle that doesn't interact with others outside their group.)

"Nature and the outdoors have been so important during this pandemic, allowing us moments of peace and joy, and keeping us healthy in body and mind during a stressful time," says Sanctuary Director Suzan Bellincampi. "The value of time together in beautiful conserved places will help us all get through this."

Through these special programs, we're able to continue providing safe opportunities for learning and enjoyment to local and visiting families this summer. 

To learn more or sign up, just call the sanctuary at 508-627-4850.

Choose Your Adventure

All Ages

Families and quaran-team groups can choose from a variety of unique experiences, all of which allow you to explore the sanctuary with up to 9 people* and a personal naturalist guide. Expeditions range from story time visits with live critters to dissecting owl pellets to birding or sunset kayaks—there's truly something for everyone!

Quaran-team Nature Adventures for Kids

Entering K–Grade 8

These full-day programs bring the fun of camp to your small gaggle of 2-5 explorers. No adults allowed on these adventures! Available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. 

Sanctuary Supper at Home

Although this year's Sanctuary Supper: An Evening Eating to Save the Planet can't be held at Felix Neck due to COVID-19, you now have the opportunity to experience this wildly successful fundraiser at home! Choose from four different curated experiences that can be hosted as a brunch, lunch, or dinner in the privacy of your home. Each option can accommodate up to 10 guests.

This unique experience will be the highlight of the summer for your friends and family members! Best of all, 50% of the fee will go towards the sanctuary's climate education, conservation, and advocacy programs on Martha's Vineyard.
