Nature Walk: The Ponds of Provincetown

Join naturalist Dennis Minsky and the Provincetown Conservation Trust for a walk through Shank Painter and Clapps ponds. Shank Painter pond has been described as Provincetown's ecological crown jewel, containing the world's largest known quaking bog found on a barrier beach. Hawks, ospreys, and an array of rare flora are found in the Shank Painter Wildlife Sanctuary. We'll continue to Clapps pond, where we find one of the largest freshwater wetlands in Provincetown, home to many seabirds, migratory birds, turtles, and river otters.

Meeting location: Shank Painter Wildlife Sanctuary parking area (off Route 6 west)

Free and open to the public.
