Camp Provincetown: After Dark Insect & Amphibian Adventure
Join the Provincetown Conservation Trust and Herpetologist Scott Smyers in an exploration of Amphibians and Insects at night as part of Bear Week!
Provincetown’s natural areas contain a variety of freshwater wetlands and are important habitats for nearly all of Cape Cod’s amphibians. Many species become active in early spring and return to the wetland or pond they were spawned in to begin another breeding cycle.
Presented in partnership with the Provincetown Business Guild, this Camp Provincetown nighttime walk offers the opportunity to listen to calling frogs and insects along Provincetown’s Old Colony nature Pathway and White Cedar Swamps while discussing the life cycles, adaptations, behavior, and ecology of outer Cape amphibians.
All participants are encouraged to wear water proof / resistant footwear, long sleeves / pants, and to also bring insect repellent. Flashlights will be provided for loan.
Please plan to meet at the entrance to the Old Colony Pathway on Howland Street. Parking is available by the trailheads. Walking / Biking to the trailhead is encouraged.
