This summer, there are more ways than ever to get out and appreciate the natural world. The Vineyard Conservation Society’s new Beach BeFrienders program encourages folks to pitch in and help clean a different Island beach together every month. Sheriff’s Meadow Foundation offers a new family-friendly treasure hunt with hand-blown glass floats hidden among its properties. Polly Hill Arboretum presents a jam-packed calendar of speakers on a wide range of topics: oak trees, bats, plant extinction, native plants, and more.
The Trustees and Mass Audubon’s Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary offer weekly activities throughout the summer, such as kayaking, birding, farm visits, and guided property tours. MassDCR is making the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest more welcoming and easier to navigate.
