Bald Eagles at the Conowingo Dam (Class is Full)
Ruth Pfeffer
Expert Birder and Trip Leader

Join us for a day of birding at the Conowingo Dam, a prime spot for viewing bald eagles as they feed on fish coming over the dam. These are magnificent birds and a thrill to see. We will also see lots of great blue herons, gulls, and other raptors. The Conowingo Dam is located on the Susquehanna River on the Pennsylvania-Maryland border. It is one of the nation’s largest nonfederal, hydroelectric installations, and is a great birding area any time of year because of its close proximity to the Delaware Bay. We will walk on a woodland trail along the river, and visit the historic town of Port Deposit. Bring binoculars, your lunch and a something to drink. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. We will meet at the Arboretum and travel
by small bus or van. Park in the meadow to the left of the entrance kiosk.

Birding at Chincoteague and Other Great Refuges
Ruth Pfeffer
Expert Birder and Trip Leader

On this three-day trip, we will visit several great birding sites beginning with a stop at Bombay Hook, a 16,000-acre National Wildlife Refuge in Delaware. In this diverse habitat, we hope to see a wide variety of geese, ducks, and other migrating birds. We will then head to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, a prime spot on the Atlantic flyway for migrating birds and an area known for its beautiful sunsets. We hope to see migrating water fowl, raptors, and early spring migrants. We may see the Sika elk, a small elk introduced in the 1920s from Asia, and of course, the wild ponies that make their home on Assateague Island. On the way home, we will visit Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, which is home to important tidal wetlands and is the center of the greatest density of breeding bald eagles on the east coast. The trip includes van transportation, accomodations, admissions, and an expert birding guide. Meals other than breakfast at the hotel are not included. We ask that you pack and bring lunches for all three days. We will meet at the Morris Arboretum. Park in the meadow to the left of the entrance kiosk.
