Join Wyncote Audubon Society and Wissahickon Trails for this midsummer field trip to Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge. Our field trip leaders Margaret Rohde, Conservation Manager, and Kristy Morley, Senior Naturalist, will lead our search 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 an entry fee is required to enter the refuge. Buy your pass in advance here:


Please register for this event on the Wyncote Audubon website. 


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.
