Want a hike where you can take your children and your parents? This is it. Along this easy, flat hike, you’re surrounded by nature’s beauty and the excitement of spotting some of the 280 species of birds that have been seen here. In season you can check out the migratory birds as they make their spring and fall journeys. On this 1,200-acre refuge, you can bike, fish, or take a canoe and do your bird watching and amphibian and reptile sighting from the water. Once written off as a useless swamp, the refuge will surprise you with more than fifty species of wildflowers, an abundance of deciduous trees, and wildlife from white-tailed deer to turtles.
