Are you curious about what you find and see on your beach walks? Join field guide author and science educator Gil Newton to discover the shellfish, crabs, echinoderms (including sea cucumber), sponges, seaweeds, the "living fossil," and other creatures that share our sandy shores. Get to know your wild, intertidal neighbors at Red River Beach on Nantucket Sound.

Gil's field guides will be available for purchase ($10) at each walk. Titles include: "Marine Habitats of Cape Cod," "Mysteries of Seaweed," "Activities for the Cape Cod Beachcomber," and "Thinking Green on Cape Cod." He'll donate all proceeds to the land-saving work of HCT.

Please note that charges for parking will begin at the conclusion of the walk should you choose to extend your visit to Red River Beach.
