Wildlife Explorers Hike

Slocum's River

About Wildlife Explorers Hike

Join us for a day of exploration at one of our ‘lesser known’ properties: Slocum River Reserve. Participants will trek across Bluebird Meadow in search of regional birds and insects before journeying to scenic tidal flats to catch fiddler craps and a glimpse of Buzzards Bay. Our guides will encourage families to use all 5 senses to observe nature and share the unique ecological features and history of this special place.

Because critters shy away from large groups, space will be limited on this hike. Register soon!
