Field Trip to Bombay Hook NWR
Bombay Hook protects one of the largest remaining expanses of tidal salt marsh in the mid-Atlantic region. The refuge, located along the coast of Delaware, is mostly marsh, but also includes freshwater impoundments and upland habitats that are managed for other wildlife. It is an important stop on the Delaware Bay for shorebirds, wading birds, and waterfowl, which are our targets for this trip.
Bring water, sunblock, and insect spray. We will meet in the parking lot at refuge visitor center headquarters at 9 am and bird until noon. We will be driving through the refuge to different locations to look for birds. Note that the visitor center is closed on weekends during July & August. Read more about the refuge here.
