Mattamuskeet Birding

December 2, 2018 | 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Join us for a birding trip to Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge!

 

Join the Sylvan Heights staff and Education Specialist Mike Campbell of the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission for an exciting trip to see large numbers of migratory birds. Mattamuskeet refuge provides excellent viewing opportunities for thousands of waterfowl, song birds, and shore birds that overwinter in North Carolina. Learn winter bird identification in the field and the importance of these unique habitats to wildlife. Bring your binoculars as we search for migratory species as well as year-round residents including Great blue heron, egrets, bald eagles, and black bears. Transportation from Sylvan Heights and snacks will be provided.

 

Trip Recommendations:

Dress warmly and for walking- we will be out in the field

Bring binoculars, cameras, and bird ID books if desired

 

Cost: $50 for Sylvan Heights members, $60 for non-members.
