There are still Paskamansett Bird Club hats available ... first class hats with long bills and very adjustable. Find out more about them at one of our meetings.


email bvm1290@comcast.net for information or comments about this website.
Paskamansett Bird Club, based in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, 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.

SPECIAL NOTES: 50th Anniversary
As our 50th Anniversary Year winds down, we continue to have special programming in various area locations in its honor. We will have a remarkable program about loons at the Westport Library, a return visit of Marla Isaac's "Birds of Prey" show at this fall's Connecting for Change conference in New Bedford, and of course our usual array of exciting speakers at our monthly meetings. Be sure to check locations of our programs carefully, as several are not at the Friends Meetinghouse. We are happy to welcome the 30 or so new members we have gained, and we also remind everyone about the terrific Paskamansett Bird Club hats. They stay on in the wind, and make a great holiday or birthday gift.


Upcoming programs and meetings

Unless otherwise noted, evening meetings convene promptly at 7:30 PM at the Community Hall of Friends Meeting, 739 Horseneck Road, South Dartmouth, MA. Please note that the Oct. 11, Nov. 13 and the May 14 meetings are at different places and times - in October we will meet on a Thursday!
