With summer in full swing, the chorus of baby herons and egrets at Norm’s Pond rookery is a must-see! On the beach, keep an eye for plover, oystercatcher, and tern chicks. Whiting, sharks, and redfish are commonly reeled in during naturalist-guided surf fishing adventures. Summer is the ideal season for beach going; favorites include beach biking, shelling, and seining.

On our beaches, plovers, sandpipers, and godwits are common, with the occasional visit from a rare Long-billed Curlew, North America’s largest shorebird. Hiking, kayaking, and truck based adventures are some of our fall favorites.
