Early-bird Bird Walk Register

Join the MMA’s Field Ornithologist, Ginger Andrews, on a boutique birding experience. Birds are an important part of Nantucket’s ecosystem and the island is known as an excellent birding spot. After a brief visit to the Museum’s ornithology collection, you will head out to some of the best birding areas on the island and around town. Tuesday trips have very limited space (transportation provided). Data will be collected during these trips for long term research.

A limited number of excellent binoculars are available for loan.

Pre-registration required.

If the Tuesday program is fully booked and you have a vehicle please call the office 508-228-9198 and we may be able to accommodate you.
