About the Event

Dr. Chris Marsh, assisted by several veteran birders, will lead a hardy group of naturalists to the north end of Hunting Island to observe gulls, terns, and shorebirds at their high tide roost. This is approximately a 3 mile round trip and may involve wading through shallow water so appropriate footwear is required.  Bring binoculars, water bottle, and a hat. 

Admission to Hunting Island State Park is required ($8pp/$5 for seniors unless you have an annual park pass). Meet near the entrance to the lighthouse. Optional:  The group will gather afterwards at the picnic tables for lunch and to discuss birds seen.
