Event Details

Experience an insider's view of SERC, on a free outdoor hiking tour led by our volunteer docents. You'll walk along the waterfront, cross marsh boardwalks and hike through the forest, while learning about SERC’s cutting-edge research projects on climate change and other issues where the land meets the sea.

Tours are limited to 10 people and require advance signup with dates announced ahead of time. If you have questions or comments, or if the tour you wish to attend is full and you would like to be added to a waitlist, please send us a message at SERCPublictours@si.edu.  Please note, if a tour has two or fewer registrations, it may be subject to cancellation. We will let registrants know at least 24 hours in advance. Additionally, we reserve the right to cancel due to inclement weather or other safety concerns. 

Tours last approximately 90 minutes, and involve about one (1) mile of hiking, starting at the Reed Education Center (directions). These tours are adult-oriented and will include walks on uneven and unpaved, gravely forest paths and wooden marsh walkways with some inclines. Proper footwear is required (no flip flops). Closed toed, secure shoes are strongly encouraged.

If you have questions or comments, please send us a message at SERCPublictours@si.edu.
