This outer Cape venture offers a different perspective than the March trip. Breeding birds have arrived  in force, and warmer waters have the seas churning with whale activity. After a visit to Beech Forest, where various songbirds including warblers are a feature, board a whale watching vessel, the “Dolphin Fleet” out of Provincetown Harbor.  This boat offers great views of whales at Stellwagon Bank, an important habitat for a diversity of marine life. Various seabirds are also abundant.

Participants should bring a lunch, extra layers of clothing and footwear for light hiking, binoculars and/or spotting scope and camera.
