About this walk:

Are you curious about what you find and see on your beach walks? Ever wonder why salt marshes are so important? Join Gil Newton author of “Activities for the Cape Cod Beachcomber” on a morning walk to discover the variety of marine plants and animals along the Cape shoreline, their ecology, and the diverse habitats in which they are found. Your guided stroll will include a survey of marine mollusks, crabs, echinoderms, sponges, horseshoe crabs, seaweeds and other common species that we find. We will take a close look at their interactions with other living things and their surrounding environment. Get to know your wild, intertidal neighbors at Red River Beach on Nantucket Sound.
