Beach Biology Field Trip - Maria Mitchell

Beach Biology Field Trip

Did you know that some Nantucketers love to eat mole crabs? Join Aquarium staff to learn about the fascinating biology, ecology, and geology that make Nantucket’s beaches so unique. We will discover shells and bones of over 15 species of marine animals and are likely to observe live mole crabs, sand fleas, shore birds, beach insects, seals, and more!

This program is designed to be interesting for all ages. Pre-registration required. The program will meet at the ‘Sconset Market parking lot. Participants must have their own vehicle for this program. In the case of inclement weather, programs will be cancelled and participants will be notified.
