Get off the couch and walk through the Crane Wildlife Refuge with the Trustees.

It’s winter. The air inside is stale, you just ate a bag of chips for lunch, and the couch is calling your name.

Join us for an energetic hike around the Crane Estate! Route will be determined by weather. The pace will be brisk, the air will be fresh, the chips will be burned off, and you’ll leave feeling invigorated!

This Hike Is For the Birds

Kids ages 4-10 will love this birding hike to Cedar Point on the Crane Estate in Ipswich Massachusetts!

This hike starts at the Barn on the Crane Estate, and wanders down to the Cedar Point Trail where many of our spring-time birds are busy getting settled. On the way, kids will use their skills of observation to see what kinds of birds are starting to show up – where are they hanging out, and what are they doing? What do they sound like? Then we’ll head to the Pine Grove where we’ll collect pine cones to make unique bird feeders for you to hang up at home. Our adventure will end with hot chocolate and s’mores around a camp fire in the Pine Grove.

When: 
Monday, April 16, 2018 1-3pm

Eye Spy Hike

Get off the couch and walk through the Crane Wildlife Refuge with the Trustees.

This hike will test our skills of observation! We’ll trek through the dunes and forest of the Crane Wildlife Refuge, keeping our eyes peeled for wonders in the wilderness; and for some things that don’t belong out in Nature as well. Each child will have the opportunity to make a notebook that can be used as a field guide to record what we see and hear on our hike. We’ll end our trek with hot chocolate and cookies.
