Join Mass Audubon for a night of camping under the stars with your family. Have an early dinner at home, and then come with your family and your tent. We will explore nature through games and hands-on activities, set up our tents near the Barn before sundown, and tell stories after the sun sets. All campouts include an evening and a morning activity or hike and a light breakfast.
Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary protects many different habitats, and we will explore all of them this weekend. During our evening hike, we will explore under rocks and logs looking for salamanders, sow bugs, and the many creatures that call this habitat home. Using nets and bug boxes, we will discover the insects that inhabit the fields and forests. With buckets and strainers in hand, our morning hike will lead us to a pond where we will observe and examine the crittters that live below the surface of the water.
The campout begins at 6:00 pm on Saturday, June 25, and ends at 9:00 am on Sunday, June 26. Rain date: Saturday, July 9, to Sunday, July 10. Campouts will be rescheduled only in the event of extreme weather. Please note that refunds will not be issued if the campout is rescheduled to the rain date and you are unable to attend. A confirmation with a list of equipment to bring will be sent.
