Late Summer & Early Fall Programs for All Ages

Camp season may be over, but there's still plenty of fun to be had outdoors in late summer and early fall! We hope you'll join us for one (or more!) of these programs that explore the habitats, biological diversity, and conservation projects that make Tidmarsh so unique. 

Note: Registration is required for all programs.

Sunset, Snacks, and...  
Saturdays, 5:00-7:00 pm • September 7-October 5
Join us for a sunset stroll to our overlook to enjoy a lively presentation about some of the wonderful wildlife at Tidmarsh. Each program features a different creature, a delicious snack, and a beautiful sunset for all to enjoy! (All ages)

Full Moon Hikes

Once dusk has settled over the marsh, we will let the moon light our way as we occasionally stop, look, and listen for creatures that awaken with the setting of the sun. We will slow our pace and heighten our senses to experience the sanctuary under the cover of darkness. (Ages 10 & up)

Sunset Nature Hike

Enjoy a guided hike of the sanctuary. Explore the trails as you learn about the history of Tidmarsh, it's restoration, and observe first-hand how nature is returning to reclaim this special place. (Ages 6 & up)
