About Us

 Nantucket Walkabout is Nantucket’s only year-round guided hiking service offering natural history walks on Nantucket Islands Land Bank land.  We lead hikes on Land Bank properties during all seasons that inform on how, geologically, the island was created by the last glacier, how Nantucket got its unique collection of plants and wildlife, how and when Native Americans and European settlers impacted the island’s natural world, and what the future may hold for Nantucket. Guide Peter B. Brace is the author of “Nantucket: A Natural History” and “Walking Nantucket: A Walker’s Guide to Exploring Nantucket on Foot”. A Nantucketer for 22 years and counting, Peter formerly wrote for the Nantucket Beacon, Nantucket Independent Independent and is currently a freelance writer. A daily hiker with his dog, Kismet, Peter knows Nantucket’s natural environs from shoreline to shoreline, its multitudes of plant, mammal, bird, fish, insect and reptile/amphibian species.
