The freshwater marsh known as Bunker Meadows can be a magical place for viewing and listening to breeding wetland birds. Usually, the only opportunity visitors have to observe Virginia rails, sora rails, or pied-billed grebes is from a distant observation tower or boardwalk. Tonight, we'll venture into the marsh by canoe for close-up views of these amazing birds. Other birds we are likely to encounter include the marsh wren, swamp sparrow, wood duck, and many more.
Instructions and Directions: Meets in front of the Visitor Center. Basic paddling instruction will be provided, along with all equipment. Participants must be able to swim. A confirmation with a list of what to bring will be sent.
