Welcome to the Nantucket Conservation Foundation's Summer Excursions guide.

Through signature annual events like the Race for Open Space, weekly Mornings for Members Walks and Science Outings, the Nantucket Conservation Foundation looks to connect our members to our mission of land conservation. There are so many ways to love the land and make it part of your life. Our events and programs can help you connect to the land through guided nature walks, presentations, and wellness excursions.

As part of our mission, and with huge efforts by Nantucket Conservation Foundation staff, we create events that bring people together to share our love of this amazing island and our passion to preserve the qualities that make Nantucket such a wonderful place. Each outing has been thoughtfully curated by a member of the NCF Team, focusing on their own expertise to highlight a piece of the Foundation's property and work.

To make these outings more meaningful, we have limited capacity for certain outings, but added additional tours to allow for more members to participate. To sign up, please click on the outing type below or visit our calendar to view by date. You may also call our office at 508-228-2884 Monday - Friday from 9am - 4pm. If your preferred walk is filled, please sign up for the wait list as availability does change and we may be able to accommodate you late on.
