We present a multi-wavelength study of the region towards the GM 2-4 nebula and the nearby source IRAS 05373+2340. Our near-infrared H2 10 S(1) line observations reveal various shock-excited features which are part of several bipolar outflows. We identify candidates for the driving sources of the outflows from a comparison of the multi-waveband archival data sets and spectral energy distribution (SED) modelling. The SED spectral slope () for all the protostars in the field was then compared with the visual extinction map. This comparison suggests that star formation progresses from north-east to south-west across this region.
