Join Salem Sound Coastwatch for this opportunity to view and learn about the many interesting waterfowl, ducks and geese that winter over in Salem Sound's coastal waters. Experienced birders will set up spotting scopes, help you identify the birds, and answer questions.

Novices are welcome--no birding experience needed!

Bring binoculars if you have them and dress for the weather.
Meet at the water's edge near the gazebo in off the main parking lot.

The session will be canceled if there is heavy rain or snow.
Make sure you RSVP so we can let you know if we have to cancel. RSVP at info@salemsound.org or 978-741-7900

Free and open to the public.

King Tides are a glimpse into the future.

Thank you all for coming to our 25th Anniversary PARTY!


"Drain SmART Salem"

View artistic, tasteful and educational murals on city stormdrains all around downtown Salem! Murals illustrate the connection between stormdrains and the ocean....that stormdrains lead directly into the ocean and can transport harmful chemicals and trash into the marine environment.

The latest addition by Kevin O'Connell and Natasha Lee Evans - onwaves design - to Drain SmART Salem! Splash says all stormdrains "drain to the ocean!" Listen to Splash, he's a smart Turtle!
A HUGE thank you for funding this and other local projects goes to
NOAA Marine Debris Prevention through Education and Outreach.
