Birding at Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge
NOTE: Forsythe NWR is a fee area. A daily pass is $4/car – cash or check only. Interagency passes are honored at this site. https://www.fws.gov/refuge/edwin_b_forsythe/
Join us as we explore the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, located near Atlantic City, NJ. We will caravan in our cars along the 8-mile-long Wildlife Drive loop, making multiple stops along the way to look for water birds, shorebirds, and other winter residents in the refuge’s saltwater marshes, freshwater habitat, and upland forest. Minimal walking is involved, although there are trails you may wish to explore on your own after the field trip concludes.
All ages and experience levels are welcome to attend. Bring binoculars and field guides; if you have a spotting scope you may want to bring that too. Dress in layers; it is usually windy on the refuge making the temps feel even colder, but much of the time we will be in our cars. Portable toilets are located at the Visitor Center.
Masks are not required for this outdoor program, although VFAS encourages all participants to be fully vaccinated and asymptomatic to attend.
