Why I Love the Ocean

December 9, Saturday 8:30 - 10:00 am

Winter Ocean Bird Training Session

Winter Island, Salem MA 01970

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! Free and open to the public.

Bring binoculars if you have them. Meet at the gazebo at the water's edge in the Winter Island parking lot. For directions, click here to link to a Google Map.

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.

Marine Science High School Internship
"Talking Trash for Clean Oceans"

Trash in the ocean, or marine debris, is one of the most alarming environmental issues we face today. If you are a high school student who cares about this problem, apply now to be part of this paid afterschool program. Every year, high school students join us to investigate this issue, immerse themselves in the surrounding scientific community and then implement REAL change in their communities.
