Awareness of Hunting

Historically, hunters have used the Smith property and hunting occurs on public lands adjacent to the property. All visitors to the station must be aware of Massachusetts hunting seasons (PDF) and wear appropriate visibility clothing. No hunting is permitted in Massachusetts on Sundays.

If you would like to borrow orange visibility vests, enter number of vests


I will make myself and my students aware of the hunting seasons in Massachusetts and educate myself and students on general field safety. I will be prepared with a first-aid kit for my class. I understand that cell phone reception at the field station is not reliable.
