Field Trip with Wyncote Audubon: Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge

Sunday, August 06 at 09:00 am




Margaret Rohde, Conservation Manager, and Kristy Morley, Senior Naturalist, are leading a field trip in partnership with Wyncote Audubon Society to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge!


Attendees will be looking for migrating shorebirds throughout the refuge's many pools, mud flats, and marshy areas, and will also check out some of the wooded trails in search of songbirds. Pack your own snacks/lunch. Note that a small entry fee is required to enter the refuge. We request that folks interested in participation to preregister for this trip so updates can be provided, if needed, as the trip nears.


Directions: We will meet at 9:00 AM at the parking area at the Visitors Center. Enter the Refuge at 2591 Whitehall Neck Road, Smyrna, DE 19977-2912


Plan to arrive a few minutes before the scheduled time of the field trip. The time stated is the STARTING time, not the arrival time. This will give you time to get yourself ready, say hello, visit a restroom and be ready to go. For all day trips, please come prepared with lunch and have a full tank of gas. Participants should plan to use their personal vehicles for the tour. Field trips are generally a safe and enjoyable experience. However, participants on a Wyncote Audubon field trip or event agree to not hold the Wyncote Audubon Society or any of its agents responsible for any accidents, losses, damages or injuries resulting from participation in the field trip or event.
