Tidmarsh Receives a Brand-New Passenger Van

Here at Tidmarsh, we're passionate about connecting our visitors and supporters with quality education programs that offer unique experiences. That's why we're so excited to share some recent news—we now have a van!

Oh, the places we'll go! 

The sanctuary's new 11-passenger van will help more people connect with nature at Tidmarsh and beyond. Beginning in January 2020, you'll be able to sign up for new birding and natural history programs that will take you to Cape Cod, Duxbury Beach, the South Coast, and more.

Have a birding hotspot you want to visit? A landscape you'd like to explore with a naturalist guide? Let us know!

Upcoming Van Programs

We invite you to check out some of the outings we have planned. Keep your eye out for spring trips, too! 

Winter Ducks at the Beach

Friday, January 10 • 9:00 am-12:00 pm

We're taking this walk to the beach! Join our Sanctuary Director for an outing on the coast that will focus on winter waterfowl and hopefully reward us with scoters, eider, goldeneye, loons, and more! Hone your current bird identification skills and pick up some new ones along the way. Beginners and birders of all levels welcome. Please bring your own binoculars. (Adults)

Snowy Owls at Duxbury Beach

Saturday, January 11 • 8:30-10:30 am & 11:00 am-1:00 pm

Migrating south from their breeding ground in the Arctic tundra, the magnificent snowy owls winter over on the Massachusetts coast. Join us and our friends at South Shore Sanctuaries to learn about the research on snowy owls as we seek out these seasonal beach visitors. Additional seasonal sights may include snow buntings and wintering wildfowl. We will meet at Duxbury Beach, on the ocean side of the Powder Point Bridge, and explore together in Mass Audubon vans.
