Education and Outreach

The Barnstable Natural Resources Program provides educational and outreach opportunities for local school groups, libraries, and community centers with such topics as wildlife, turtles, natural resource officer work, and river herring. We also participate at various wildlife, environment, and nature expos in the Barnstable area with our traveling animal exhibit, shellfish tank, or live turtles. These classroom visits and outreach expos help the local community and visitors become aware of natural resources, wildlife, habitat, and environmental regulations in Barnstable.

If your organization, community group, or classroom is interested in a visit from our program, please contact Natural Resource Officer Amy Croteau.
