Join Medford Leas residents for this popular field trip to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Delaware. The area was created in 1937 as a refuge and breeding ground for migrating birds and other wildlife. It currently comprises nearly 16,000 acres of land, with about 80 percent tidal salt marsh. Bombay Hook NWR is known for its vast expanse of tidal salt marsh, one of the largest unfragmented marshes in the Mid-Atlantic. On this trip, you are likely to see a wide assortment of birds, including avocet, black-necked stilts, blue grosbeaks, indigo buntings, and wood ducks.
Bring your own lunch and beverage to enjoy at the Refuge, as well as your own binoculars. Meet the group at the Medford Campus Community Building for departure at 8:00 am. The group will return at approximately 4:00 pm.
All participants will need to provide their own transportation.
