Evan Dalton

Lead Instructor, Landbird Conservation

Since the dawn of history, birds have been making annual journeys up and down the globe and humans have marveled at the spectacle. In this class, we’ll talk about the phenomenon of migration. Why do birds migrate, where do they go, and how do they perform such seemingly-impossible feats? Scientists at Manomet have been studying bird migration for over 50 years. Let us share some of what we’ve learned over that span.

Cost is $15 for Manomet members and $20 for nonmembers. Contact Evan Dalton at with questions.

This spring 2022 migration season, for the first time in Manomet history, you can adopt one of the mist nets we use to safely capture birds for research! By adopting a mist net in your name or a loved one’s, you will support critical bird and ecology research and help educate the next generation of conservationists.
