Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Tue, May 07, 2019, 7:30am - 12:00pm
Preserve Manager Tim Burris and other knowledgeable birders will guide the group to various locations in and around Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary in search of migratory and nesting bird species.
All eyes and ears are welcome as we look for warblers, orioles, flycatchers, tanagers, thrushes, and other avian species.
Mariton is perched on the steep slopes of Bougher Hill overlooking the scenic Delaware River. A highlight of the preserve’s trail system is the River Lookout Trail, with an overlook of both the Delaware Canal and the Delaware River 300 feet below.
Mariton’s Nature Center includes a library, meeting space, and ADA restrooms, and is open by prior arrangement.
