Rain date: Sunday, June 26, 10 a.m. 

Join coastal citizen scientist Peter Fifield for a stroll through Squantum Point Park at low tide.  Explore tide pools, search for great piddocks, learn about a "sunken forest" and inspect the remnants of a 1940 era cofferdam- built to create the runway for the Squantum Naval Air Station- being dismantled by Mother Nature. Bring water and wear shoes that can get wet and muddy.  Meet at the shelter by the Squantum Point Park parking lot.  From Quincy Shore Drive, turn right on to East Squantum Street, then left on to Victory Road in Marina Bay.  Proceed straight through the first rotary.  Take the next left on to the Haul Road to enter the park.  For more information and rain date rescheduling, call 617/472-0799.
