Misery Island Birding Tour with Chris Leahy


August 27, 2021, 8:00 AM to 11:30 AM


Salem Ferry Dock

With 83 acres of varied habitats, Great Misery Island – now protected by The Trustees - offers a fascinating mix of natural and human history. On this 3.5-hour trip (including 30-minute boat ride each way), you will explore these varied elements with naturalist and Cape Ann resident, Chris Leahy. Of special interest will be the commencement of fall bird migration. We will spend the morning walking slowly on well-maintained trails, some of which go uphill, but not very steeply. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen and insect/tick repellant are recommended.

Boat Departure Location: Naumkeag departs from the Salem Ferry dock at 10 Blaney Street, Salem MA 01970.
