Cape Cod Field Schools

Enjoy learning in the beautiful coastal setting of Cape Cod. Wellfleet Bay offers a wide variety of field courses for adults that focus on the unique coastal environment and wildlife of Cape Cod

Active outdoor "in-the-field" experiences and taught by professional naturalists and scientists, Field School courses are either 2 or 3 days in length—providing just enough time to become immersed in the subject.

The beaches, woods, dunes, and wetlands of Cape Cod National Seashore, Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, the islands off Chatham, and the waters of Cape Cod provide the setting for the courses.

Previous experience is not required—all you need is an inquisitive mind and an eagerness to learn!
