Manomet and Wildlands Trust invite you to join us to get out into nature this winter and early spring!  We’ll be searching for owls and animal tracks in February.  Come March, we’ll take a moonlight walk to look for woodcock and the first signs of spring. Manomet’s Evan Dalton, Lead Instructor, Landbird Conservation, will be leading the walks; please dress warmly and bring your flashlight! All of our walks are suitable for adults and children ages 7 and up. More details are below and on our website.  Space is limited, so please register early!

Join Manomet and Wildlands Trust to look for owls, animal tracks and woodcock in February and March!

Winter Trees and Wildlife Tracks—Family Nature Walk

Davis Douglas Farm Conservation Area, Plymouth, MA


Join Manomet and Wildlands Trust staff for a guided walk around Davis-Douglas Farm Conservation Area in Plymouth, searching for signs of life in the middle of winter! Join us on President’s Day as we help your family kick off the start of February Vacation week. On our walk, we’ll learn how to identify local tree species by their bark and buds and look for tracks and other signs of local animals along the trails.



Moonlight Walk for Woodcock

Monday, February 20, 2017, 10:00 to 11:30AM

Wildlands Trust Great River Preserve, Bridgewater, MA


Join Manomet and Wildlands Trust staff in enjoying one of the first signs of spring: the epic display of the American Woodcock! Although they are actually shorebirds, woodcocks display in damp fields in the spring before nesting in the woods. The unique springtime display of the woodcock has earned it such colorful nicknames as ‘Labrador twister’ and ‘timberdoodle.’


What is this display like? You’ll just have to come on our walk to find out!


The cost to attend any of these walks is: Adult $15.00 nonmember, $12.00 member (of either Manomet or Wildlands Trust), child $5.00.  For additional information, please contact Evan Dalton at
