Mary Jo Foti (mary[email protected]) & Nathaniel Marchessault ([email protected]),
Saturday, March 21, SSBC attendees meet at Sagamore Park & Ride at 7 AM,
CCBC attendees meet at Salt Pond Visitors Center at 8 AM

The two groups will rendezvous at Salt Pond Visitors’ Center at 8 am and head to Outer Cape destinations. Our Outer Cape trip begins by walking the Fire Rd. to Race Point Beach, and then walking the beach back to RP parking lot where our rides will be waiting thanks to a well coordinated parking system. By then we’ll be ready for a laid back lunch at Far Land Provisions or another local establishment. We’ll then head towards Macmillan Pier, before continuing on to Eastham to check out Herring Pond as well as a couple of other nice hotspots. Layer up even if it looks like a mild day!

Penniman House at Fort Hill.

The above bird walks from the Cape Cod Bird Club are free and open to the public.  If attending an email to the trip leader is appreciated. Rain cancels.
