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.
