Beach Biology Field Trip

Did you know that some Nantucketers love to eat mole crabs? Join MMA staff to learn about the fascinating ecology, and geology of Nantucket’s unique shoreline. We will explore and investigate the shells and bones of various types of marine animals and we may even observe mole crabs, sand fleas, shore birds, beach insects, and perhaps even seals! By the end of the afternoon, you will be an expert Nantucket beachcomber!
