Looking for fresh air and 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 Lloyd Center for the Environment tradition and celebrate the New Year with a peaceful walk on Gooseberry Island 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.
Participants should dress warmly and wear hiking boots; binoculars and cameras are also recommended.
