Paskamansett Bird Club
Based in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, the club was established in 1963 for the purpose of bringing people together who have the utmost fascination and appreciation for nature's crown jewels, birds.
Members are always willing to share their knowledge to help beginning birders enjoy their newly found hobby. We have many bird walks that take us to some of the most beautiful areas in Southern New England.
We conduct monthly meetings with distinguished guest speakers who give a wealth of information on birding and other nature related subjects, often accompanied by wonderful slide presentations. The enthusiasm and participation of our club members result in many lifelong friendships.
