Weekend Update

Fall officially starts this weekend! And to celebrate, we’ve got some amazing programs lined up. Here’s just a sampling of what we have planned.

  • Ever wonder what’s going on with your neighborhood birds? Or what bird is making that call ? Get the answers to these and more during Broadmoor’s Intro to Birding: Fall Migrants in Natick on Saturday. (registration required)
  • Stony Brook’s annual Fall Fair takes place Saturday in Norfolk. Expect a field full of crafters, owls, musical entertainment from Flooky and the Beans, and more!
  • Help Joppa Flats remove trash and debris from the beaches on Plum Island, including the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, Sandy Point State Reservation, and the north end of the island as part of COASTSWEEP. In the past six years, we have collected over 11 tons of debris!
  • During the free Fall Migration at Canoe Meadows in Pittsfield, take a leisurely walk through meadows and woodland along the Housatonic River to view fall migrant birds in a variety of habitats. (free, but registration is required)
  • Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the George Robert White Environmental Conservation Center during Boston Nature Center’s annual (and free) Rockin’ with Raptors festival. Hike the trails, enjoy music by Branches Steel Orchestra, see raptors up close, make crafts, and enjoy delicious food.
  • The fall season brings out some of Cape Cod’s most colorful and beautiful wildflowers. Wellfleet Bay’s Fall Wildflower Workshop will teach you to identify wildflowers in the field with a special emphasis on goldenrods and asters. (registration required)
  • Learn the difference between stars and planets and how to find some popular constellations in the night sky during Broad Meadow Brook’s Stargazing program in Worcester Saturday night. (registration required)
