2024 Community Programming Sponsorship: 
Offer your business a unique way to maximize brand awareness while making an impact!   Research shows consumers are more likely to choose businesses they feel good about supporting.  Increase your brand loyalty by showing your customers you support the Watch Hill community.  Taking a Community Programming Sponsorship will help the Conservancy defray costs and maintain the Chaplin B. Barnes Reading Room, our primary venue for public programming such as our flagship lecture series, Lanphear LIVE!.  To learn more about this important opportunity, contact Barbara Axmacher at or click here to visit our Community Programming Sponsor page.


Nature Walks begin mid-June and continue every Saturday morning (weather permitting) at 9:00 AM until Labor Day weekend. Join us for free guided walks on Napatree that are customized to the interests of our participants. Meet us at the entrance to Napatree at 9:00 AM sharp to join the walk.


Volunteering: Horseshoe Crab Surveys – Napatree is a favorite spawning ground of these living fossils that as a species are over 400 million years old! During the high tides of the new and full moon during May, June and July, we will be out counting and tagging Horseshoe Crabs as they make their way to shore to lay eggs. Come experience this wonder of nature and learn about their importance as an indicator of the health of our oceans and as a critical food source to endangered shorebirds. Volunteers can participate in the Horseshoe Crab counts, recording data, and tagging animals. Please contact in the Spring for the dates and times of our surveys.


Be a Member! The Watch Hill Conservancy is a membership-based organization. We wouldn’t exist were it not for the generous support from the community. Please join/renew. If you have – thank you so much for your participation!
