Bluebird copyright Dorrie HolmesOwl prowls, building bluebird houses, woodcock walks, and learning about the plight of the American Chestnut Tree are just a few of the programs we have on tap this weekend.

  • Explore the fascinating world of owls at Stony Brook in Norfolk during the Owl Prowl. We’ll take a look at what makes these critters so special, practice our owl hoots and then head out on the trail to look and listen. After the walk we’ll head back to the nature center to share our discoveries and warm up with some hot chocolate. (registration required)
  • Drumlin Farm is hosting a Birding Cape Ann day trip to explore the coves, cracks, crannies, beaches, and thickets of Cape Ann looking for a perfect storm of birdlife. Seabirds and waterfowl, sparrows and shorebirds, Cape Ann has it all. (registration required)
  • Beautiful and fun to watch, bluebirds help gardeners by eating insects all day long. Welcome bluebirds to your home by Building a Bluebird House at Broad Meadow Brook in Worcester. You’ll learn how to place your boxes in the right habitat, plus more about eastern bluebird conservation efforts. (registration required)
  • Join Allens Pond in Dartmouth for a sunset Grassland Woodcock Walk. This hike will focus on identifying and viewing the American Woodcock and learning more about this important grassland species, including a perfect view of their courtship display in the skies above the fields.

  • During Our Changing Forests and the American Chestnut Tree, we’ll venture along the trails of Moose Hill in Sharon with teacher naturalist Michael Acciavatti to locate and identify American Chestnut trees, investigate the disease that continues to inflict them, and come to understand how its demise has influenced the forest ecosystem and local culture.
