CAMPING ON THE CAPE

September 6 - September 8

This trip is currently full. To be put on a wait list please contact Wendy at wtocci@gmail.com 

Join fellow JBNHS members for birding and camping on Cape Cod. We’ll be camping at Nickerson State Park in Brewster, MA. Nickerson State Park is a large state owned campground and park with miles of birding/walking/biking trails, several ponds and, most importantly, is the owl serenade at night. Screech, Barred and Great Horned have been reported. We’ll scour the local beaches for shorebirds and seabirds hitting locations such as the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge. An evening visit to Hemenway Landing to watch the  Black-crowned and Yellow-crowned night herons leave their roosts will top off one of the days’ activities. We are also planning on a boat trip (details TBD).

Number of participants is limited to 25. We have reserved a group campsite that is restricted to tents only. Cost is $25 per person for camping. Meals and extracurricular excursions are separate.

If you are interested please contact Wendy Tocci (wtocci@gmail.com) to reserve your spot as well as to find out more details.

DOWNLOAD THE REFRIGERATOR READY FIELD TRIP LIST FOR 2019

The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
