Tens of thousands of shorebirds refuel on Plum Island's extensive mudflats on their migration from the Arctic to South America. Learn how these birds have adapted to marathon migrations, and hone your ID skills. Experience the wonder of thousands of swallows swirling in the air before they drop into the marsh to roost for the evening. Bring binoculars, spotting scope if you have one, dinner, and drinks. Loaner binoculars are available and leaders will have spotting scopes. Transportation provided from Drumlin Farm.
Also open to teens age 14 or older with an adult.
