Spend the afternoon with us looking at birds on Bird Island and other locations around Marion’s coastline on July 27: An introduction to our coastal birds with a naturalist from U.S. Fish and Wildlife. A naturalist with MA Fish and Wildlife will be giving us a presentation on shore birds of our area. We will hear first-hand from one of the naturalists how they’ve been helping to improve the nesting habitat for the Roseate Terns of our area. Then we will be taking a trip to Bird Island, courtesy of Marion Harbormaster’s office and lead naturalist, Carolyn Mostello.
