July Program Descriptions

Botany Bike: Want to learn more about Pawtuckaway’s plants? Grab your bike and let’s cycle our way through some botanical knowledge! We’ll take a break halfway at Fundy Cove, so bring some snacks and water. Participants under 16 must wear a helmet.

Discovery Drop-in: Meet Renee, your Interpretive Ranger!  Stop by the camp store (W/Th) or the Visitor's Center (Fri) to learn about some local wildlife, make your own nature craft, and get tips on how to best enjoy your time at beautiful Pawtuckaway State Park.

Night Hike: Join me on this evening stroll!  We'll learn how some animals have adapted to the dark and test our own nighttime senses.

Beach Breathe:  Start your day off right with morning flow yoga.  All levels of experience are welcome; just bring a mat or towel and meet at the beach.  Namaste!

A Feast in our Forest: Pawtuckaway’s woods are teeming with wild edible plants.  Join in to discover an abundance of natural nibbles, and learn tricks to identify species in your future forages.

Creatures of the Marsh: Discover what's hiding beneath the waters!  Stop by for a few minutes or hang out for the full 2 hours; come find me and grab a net on the marsh's edge near the camp store.

Trek through Time: Come take a walk through Pawtuckaway’s rich history!  We will explore native culture, discover remnants of families who settled in the area, and reveal insights into the park we know today.  Meet at the Tower Trail trailhead parking area; we will take a short hike to the marsh and back.

"Little Tike" Hike: Children will love this interactive walk through the woods!  Get ready to get in touch with nature through personal reflection, as well as engage in fun activities as a group.
