Looking for fresh air, exercise, or to learn more about the natural world around you? If so, this is the perfect trip for you! Join Research Director Mark Mello, for this annual Lloyd Center tradition and celebrate the New Year with a peaceful walk on Gooseberry Neck beach. Focusing on coastal ecology and bird identification, Mark will identify winter waterfowl and washed up marine life. January is a wonderful time of year to walk the coast and observe the effects of wave action on the slope and shape of the beach. This is a very informal outing, and those that simply want to walk are more than welcome.

Masks are required to participate in this event. Proper social distancing will also be employed. Participants should dress warmly and wear hiking boots; binoculars and cameras are also recommended.
