- All ages
Bring the whole family for a celebration of spring – rain or shine! There will be something for everyone: crafts, costume parade and symbolic planting of milkweed (too early this spring to put in ground), spring scavenger hunt, information about pollinators and how you can help. We will conclude the day with a picnic lunch (please bring your own food).
- Festivities begin at 10:30 am
- Costume Parade starts at 12:00 pm
- Socialize and picnic lunch!
- The event wraps up around 1:00 pm, but families are welcome to stay and explore on their own.
Become an Audubon Citizen Scientist! Join local experts for a survey of the marsh for the many different types of plants and insects, including butterflies and dragonflies. We will have a training session before we head out. Participants can choose plants or insects to survey. After the surveys the two groups will reconvene and discuss their results. The data collected will be compared to previous surveys and will serve as an indicator of the health of the marsh.
Advance registration appreciated but not required.

Join us at Scarborough Marsh for a marsh-wide survey of birds and help us document all present species. Timed to catch the beginning of shorebird migration, we divide the marsh among groups of monitors. Depending on the assignment, some surveys are on foot, by car or from a canoe (provided at the marsh or bring your own). Beginning birders welcome!
