Welcome to all birding skill levels! Venture to different hot spots around Essex County and take some time to observe a rich variety of birdlife. We'll travel by van and carpool to focus our three-hour field trip on the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Plum Island, the Merrimack River estuary, and other locations around Essex County.
Meet at Joppa Flats Education Center. Bring binoculars and a field guide to birds. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and terrain.
Masks are required indoors and in vans; they are optional outdoors. Anyone wishing to travel in a Mass Audubon vehicle must bring their vaccination record (actual or photo) for visual confirmation.
Please note our cancellation policy: If cancellations are made less than 7 days prior to the program, refunds cannot be issued.
