Please join Wild Care at the 22nd annual event at Cape Cod Community College’s Tilden Arts Center.  Wild Care will be presenting “Wild Care’s Therapy Pools – Decrease Recovery Time of Aquatic Birds in Captivity.”

Each year Wellfleet Bay has organized a full day conference featuring presenters from environmental organizations across Cape Cod speaking on a diversity of natural history topics. This conference continues to be an engaging, exciting, and fun way to learn about local research projects, conservation efforts, and local environmental organizations.

Bring a brown bag lunch and to help us cut down on waste, bring a mug for coffee. Coffee and refreshments provided.

Learn about recent scientific research and other natural history topics, including:

  • A Three-Year Study of Bats on the Upper Cape
  • The Sounds that Fish Make
  • The First Successful Capture, Rehabilitation, and Release of a Manatee that Strayed into Chilly Cape Cod Waters
