Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary to Host ‘Fall Field Schools’ Program

WELLFLEET – Starting this week, and lasting through October, officials from the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and the Mass Audubon Society are partnering up for their ‘Fall Field Schools’ initiative.

The program will provide participants with the chance to learn about the Cape’s fascinating wildlife and landscapes, by meeting true professionals in the field.

During the ‘Shorebirds & Seabirds’ event, taking place September 7th-9th, Ornithologist David Clapp will provide the novice birder skills necessary to identify “peeps” plovers, and other shorebird species. The weekend will also include multiple boat trips to some of the area’s best birding hot spots.

For ‘Whales & Seals of Cape Cod’, scientists Lisa Sette, Elizabeth Bradfield, and Krill Carson will dive into the life’s of large baleen whales and seals, by providing boat trips and shoreline walks, in search of species that are sometimes close enough to view from the beach. This event will take place September 14th–16th.

Finally, during the ‘Fall Migrants’ event taking place October 19th-21st, expert birders Joel Wagner and Christine Bates will guide enthusiasts through key birding spots in Wellfleet, during this year’s songbird migration.
