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 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!

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!

Preregistration is required by 4:00pm on Friday, July 21. The rain date is Sunday, July 23.

Cost: $8 Lloyd Center members, $10 nonmembers (children under 12 half price)
