Habitat Hike, Grades 3-5

Explore the trails of the sanctuary and discover all that is has to offer. Spend time searching the field for turtles and catching insects or roam the woods looking for salamanders or signs of coyotes or other mammals. You may also get your hands a little wet as you try to catch fish and crabs in the salt marsh creek or dragonflies and frogs in the pond. A naturalist will be your guide as you meander through the varied habitats of Wellfleet Bay.
