School & Group Programs at Long Pasture

At Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, we offer a multitude of fun and educational nature-based programs year round for students from age 5 to 18. Our field studies are organized around critical ecosystems—tidal flats, salt marsh, beach, meadow, and vernal pool—which are home to a rich collection of plants and animals. The goal of our outdoor programs is to explore the ecological concepts of food web, adaptation, diversity, and human interrelationships with these habitats.
