Parent/Child Walkabouts: Rough Meadows Marsh Afternoon Walk

Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary is part island, part forest and part marsh!

In every kind of weather, our favorite thing is to head outdoors to our spectacular local habitats! Each nature exploration will focus on the importance of a sense of place as we explore the ecology, sights, and sounds of our natural landscape. Wildlife, local and migrating birds, collecting techniques, and environmental awareness will be presented in a fun, energetic format that adults and children alike will enjoy.  This week we will walk the trails of the Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary in Rowley.

  • The fee covers one adult and one child.
  • For kids ages 3-6. Not recommended for children under 3.
  • Participants should wear warm layers (it can be cool and breezy on the shore).
  • Rain or Shine
  • Wear Waterproof Footwear

If you can't make the afternoon session - try the See, Think & Wonder Walk: Roll, Dig & Burrow at Rough Meadows!


Meet at Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary on Stackyard Road in Rowley. Rain or shine. Please dress for the weather with waterproof boots.
