FALL NATURE EXCURSION: Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge

November 5, 2022 @ 8:30 am - 8:30 pm


This is the first in a NEW SERIES of Quarterly Day Trips! Spend the day with other nature lovers, traveling together in the Irvine mini-bus to explore some of the Mid-Atlantic’s best wildlife hotspots.

For this first excursion, we will witness the beginning of fall waterfowl migration, when tens of thousands of ducks, geese, and swans descend upon the tidal marshes of Dorchester County. Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is one of the very best sites on the East Coast to witness Bald Eagles and one of the last strongholds of the rare Delmarva Fox Squirrel. The day will include a visit to the nearby Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitors Center. On the return trip we will stop for an evening meal at a local seafood restaurant in the Kent Narrows area. The Fall Nature Excursion will depart from Irvine and participants will travel together in the Irvine bus. This program is intended for Adults and teens ages 15+.

Instructor: Brian Rollfinke, Director of Education
