In cooperation with Cornell's Adult University, Shoals is pleased to offer this NEW program! Led by David Bonter, ornithologist and biologist with Cornell's Lab of Ornithology, we will sail out to watch whales and pelagic birds and to explore the distinctive biological and historical treasures of the Isles of Shoals. We'll learn about those who have made their homes on these islands, from Native Americans to poet Celia Thaxter and artist Childe Hassam.
