Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Sat, May 05, 2018, 9:00am - 12:00pm
May is a magical month at Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary. Join Preserve Manager Tim Burris on a guided walk to spotlight plants and the pollinators that depend upon them, including bees and butterflies.
Natural Lands’ time-tested stewardship strategies have resulted in an eye-catching array of wildflowers that thrive in Mariton’s sunny fields and shady woodlands, including pennywort, baneberry, and foamflower.
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.
Dress for the season, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a water bottle.
Be prepared to walk a few miles on uneven terrain.
Don’t forget binoculars or cameras to capture beautiful photos!
Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
