Woods Hole Science Aquarium Collecting Walk
Learn all about local salt marshes and their ecology during collecting walks with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Woods Hole Science Aquarium staff.
The aquarium is offering public collecting walks on Tuesday, August 27, from 11 a.m. to about 1 p.m. at local beaches. Science Aquarium staff and others serve as naturalists on the walks, teaching about life in salt marshes, demonstrating how to collect animals, and identifying the catch. Sometimes we bring animals back to the aquarium to add to our collection. More often we observe the animals briefly and then release them.
The aquarium staff provides nets, buckets, coolers, animal expertise, directions to the day’s collecting site and one-time parking passes. Our guests provide their own transportation, bathing suits, water shoes, towel and sunscreen.
NOTE: Reservations may be made in person only at the front desk, but they can be made anytime before the walk. Collection walks are subject to weather.
