"We're not just
we're friendly birders".
The Nasketucket Bird Club was founded in 2006 under the auspices of the Mattapoisett Land Trust and is now a separate organization.
The club hosts at least two field trips a month from September through June throughout South Coast Massachusetts as well as hot spots in the state. The club hosts monthly meetings every 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm featuring a variety of topics such as birding skills, conservation, birding destinations, and conservation and environmental concerns. The club also participates in the New Bedford Christmas Bird Count in conjunction with the Paskamansett Bird Club.
The mission of the Nasketucket Bird Club is to develop a greater appreciation for local birds and birding practices; learn from one another; to collaborate with like organizations and work toward both bird and environmental conservation; and to connect as a group with the purpose of becoming friendly birders. Birding belongs to everyone: we welcome all who enjoy and care about birds, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, birding experience or skill level.
Connecting people to birds
Birding simply starts by engaging in the birds' world. Engaging in their world we begin to see the birds in the trees, the marshes, the ocean, and the sky more clearly.
By gaining experience in the field and knowledge from birding experts we begin to understand the needs of birds and what is important to them.
To make real impact, we strive to see the world through the eyes of one another and the birds around us. With increased understanding we gain a stronger respect for our neighbors and our environment, and to create a better world for all.
