SEVEN PONDS NATURE CENTER

Natural History and Birding Field Tours

Seven Ponds Nature Center offers multi-day field tours to unique destinations throughout North America. Join nature center staff as they lead you in exploring these natural areas. Natural history field tours focus on the flora, fauna, and geology, while birding field tours seek out the avian life of the region. Check out the upcoming field tours highlighted below, and consider coming along for a grand adventure in the outdoors with Seven Ponds Nature Center.

Birding Field Tour registration policy: due to the popularity of our birding field tours, and in an effort to make these tours available to all, we will be registering via lottery. Interested persons should apply for a tour lottery in advance of the lottery date. Any remaining spaces after the lottery will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who are not chosen in a given lottery will be offered first opportunity to register for subsequent birding field tours in the same calendar year. See upcoming birding field tour brochures for more information.
