Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Mariton Wildlife Sanctuary | Sun, January 27, 2019, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Chilly weather is no reason to hibernate! Lace up warm boots for a winter walk through windswept meadows and quiet woodlands. Amid Mariton’s magical landscape we’ll look for signs of winter wildlife. Resident chickadees, Titmice, sparrows, and woodpeckers forage for seeds and nuts while deer, fox, and other critters leave tracks through the snow.
If there’s enough of the white stuff on the ground, we’ll don snow shoes for the experience. (Don’t have any? Don’t worry, we have some you can borrow. Please call Preserve Manager Tim Burris at 610-258-6574 to reserve a set.)
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 warmly for winter weather and wear sturdy boots.
