The Get Outside Center is the physical home of Cape Ann Vernal Pond Team and Kestrel Educational Adventures. Located in the heart of Gloucester, we created the center to connect more people, more deeply with their local wilds. The Get Outside Center is a place to ask outdoorsy questions and meet outdoorsy people. 

The Center is staffed occasionally in the winter afternoons and more often in the summer when there are a lot of activities going on in and around Cape Ann.  Knowledgable staff is on hand to help you discover what we have to offer... or just take a walk downtown to relax, observe our little creatures, and hang out.

If you see the flag flying outside we're in -- please stop by!

The center includes a large wall map, local property guides, lending library, outdoor gear, digital microscope lab, kids activities, and a live animal exhibit. It also plays host to a number of programs and events throughout the year.

The Get Outside Center also seeks to coordinate public engagement efforts among the patchwork of land trusts, municipalities, governmental agencies, community groups, environmental advocates, and private citizens who are the gatekeepers and primary stewards of Cape Ann's local wild areas.
