Understanding Endangered Species Field Trip
While incorporating some of the same activities and discussions from the "In Class" description, students will get the opportunity to visit a wildlife sanctuary to learn about particular species that sanctuary is working to protect. It could be Blanding’s turtles at Oak Knoll, river herring at Tidmarsh, or coastal waterbirds at Allen’s Pond and North River.
This field trip is available at all of our South East Sanctuaries which include Allen's Pond, North River, Oak Knoll, and Tidmarsh Wildlife Sanctuaries.
