Tours & Trips

Monarch Tagging Day

Join the Nantucket Land Council and our resource ecologist Emily Molden for a public monarch tagging program. We’ll bring nets and tags so you just need to bring yourself and a sense of adventure. We also recommend wearing long pants and closed toed shoes. Call the NLC office at 508-228-2818 to register and find out the meeting location. All ages are welcome to this free event!


Vernal Pool Tours

Join the Nantucket Land Council each spring for an exploration of the vernal pools found on Nantucket.  On a discovery walk led by Resource Ecologist Emily Molden, you will learn about vernal pools – bodies of water that form during the spring and provide essential habitat to a variety of species.  Discover some of the unique animals that call these temporary bodies of water home! Tours are open to adults and children with a parent/caregiver.

Tours are free and open to the public; advance registration is required.  Registration is open by email or phone (508) 228-2818.  Please call the office to learn more.


Downtown Tree Tours

Learn about the beautiful and historic species Tree Tourof trees that line our downtown streets.  These tours are led by both the Executive Director Cormac Collier and the Resource Ecologist Emily Molden.  Their combined knowledge of biology and island history generates interesting conversations and surprising questions. Find out how all of our town trees have been preserved over the decades. Group size is limited – we welcome small group private tours by appointment.  Please call the office at 508-228-2818 or email for more information.
