We'll hike to the observation tower and along the edge of Bunker Meadows in search of wetland wildlife. We will then explore Beech Island, a little-known gem near the Ipswich River.
The return of summer means warmth, sun, and the return of jewel-like damselflies and dragonflies. Can you tell the difference between the two? These insects have an amazing life history and eat our least favorite flying insects, mosquitoes! We will spend the afternoon in the sanctuary's fields and wetlands catching dragonflies and observing them in their aquatic naiad stage. And by the end of the afternoon, you will know the difference between a dragon and a damsel and may even have the opportunity to hold one in your hand!
We'll hike to Rockery Pond and learn about the building of its famous rock grotto. While we're enjoying flowering shrubs in the beautiful woodland garden, we might get a glimpse of the pond's newest architect, the beaver!
The members of the North Shore Rock & Mineral Club (NSRMC) of Massachusetts, have been producing this highly successful, family-oriented show for 49 years.
"The show is a wonderful way for the family to connect over an exciting array of beads, jewelry, mineral specimens, fossils, gemstones, crystals, natural oddities and fascinating antiquities; indoors, and in a safe, family-friendly environment.", said Donna Lee Hanlon, Co-Chair of the show.
Join us as we share a children's nature story before we explore the woods, fields, and wetlands of the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary. This month we'll focus on the birds of Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary.
If you're a junior high or high school student interested in nature, this is the program for you! Spend the day birding and paddling the Ipswich River, a great place to observe spring migrants. We will join Drumlin Farm's Becky Gilles and her Peregrine Birders in hopes of getting close looks at herons, hawks, and warblers. Leave mom and dad behind and meet some other teens who share the same interests as you!
Undoubtedly, one of the fondest memories anyone can have in astronomy is the moment an individual takes in a first view of the Moon through a telescope. You know, of course, that its surface is covered with craters. But did you also know that there are mountains, valleys, and more exotic features? Join North Shore Amateur Astronomy Club at Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary for a close up look
