Shorebird Walks

June 10
July 8 & 26
August 5

Most of North America’s shorebird species winter in South & Central America, heading north breed in the high Arctic. Spring means many of those species are making their northbound migration to their breeding grounds. Join us as we look for many of our shorebird species at some of the best spots around southeastern Connecticut, and learn how you can help these charismatic birds. $13 for members; $18 for non-members.
