Junior Biologist Program

October 30, 2014 - May 14, 2015Environmental Education (PROMO)

Back Bay Restoration Foundation and Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge are teaming up for an after-school nature club for local students. This interactive program will guide children in exploration of the plants, animals and ecosystems of the Back Bay watershed. Hands-on, creative activities and field experiences will drive each meeting of the group.

Both dikes will be resurfaced with gravel during this time. To maintain a safe environment for our visitors all foot and bicycle traffic will be suspended.



  • Fees will be waived during the time of the closure.   
  • The Blue Goose Tram will continue to run during the closure. The winter tram schedule begins November 1 (please see the tram event page). 
  • All trails adjacent to the parking area will remain open (Bay Trail, Seaside Trail and Kuralt Trail).
  • Access to False Cape State Park will continue along the oceanfront.
  • This project will run into the normal seasonal closure of the dikes which begins on November 1st. The dike trails will reopen on April 1, 2014.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this improvement project!
