For teens 13-18 years old.
Interesting hikes, natural history topics to explore, hands-on projects, and real wildlife data-collection opportunities will be based on your input and interests in this exciting club for teens. This is your chance to get involved behind the scenes with Mass Audubon's science and conservation work. The club meets one or two Saturdays a month in a spring/summer session and fall/winter session. We also take one field trip each session to connect with other local organizations, learn more about environmental issues in our communities, and find out how you can make a difference.
Past projects have included salamander monitoring, birding and bird conservation, pulling invasive plants, habitat restoration, wildlife tracking with trail cameras, water quality monitoring by canoe, and much more. You will also meet other local teens who are passionate about nature, science, and taking care of our world.
Here are the tentative topics and projects for this Fall (subject to change as new opportunities and interests arise):
September 10th - 2:00pm to 4:00pm - Field Restoration Insect Survey and Monarch Butterfly Tagging
October 1st - 2:00pm to 4:30pm - River Ecology by Canoe
October 29th - 2:00pm to 4:00pm - Tracking Mammals by Trail Camera
November 19th - 3:30pm to 5:30pm - Evening Duck Migration Survey
December 17th - 2:00pm to 4:00pm - Topic TBD (Based on Teen Interests)

Meets in front of the Barn. Dress for the weather since we will be outside for the whole program. Date and time of the field trip is sometimes subject to change based on what location we choose to visit. Every effort will be made to make sure all teens can attend the field trip.
