Gooseberry Island
10 East Beach Rd.
Westport, MA 02790

Gooseberry Island serves as a stopover site for various shorebirds species, and in some years as a nesting site for both plovers and terns.  By late July the shorebird migration is underway with both fledges from the local breeding population as well as birds passing through from further north, beginning to appear. Come visit this island which has something to see at all times of the year!

Preregistration is required by 4:00 pm on Friday, July 22nd. The rain date is Sunday, July 24th.

Participants should bring birding equipment (optics, bird guide, camera -we have extra guides and optics in limited supply) and be prepared to walk the beach!

Fees: $8 Members, $10 Nonmembers, Children under 12 half price
