Please join DOS and DWL for a quiet birding and wildlife paddle tour of DWL’s Augustine Creek Complex. Bring your own canoe or kayak, life jackets and binoculars and join DOS Conservation Chair and wildlife ecologist Matt Sarver, DOS Conservation and Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Sally O’Byrne and DWL Conservation Programs Manager Brigham Whitman as we slip silently through the marshes of Augustine Creek in search of breeding marsh birds, reptiles and amphibians, and other wetland wildlife! We’ll paddle up to about 1.5 miles from our starting point and back at a casual pace in search of wetland species, stopping periodically to look and listen.  This trip will feature a unique perspective on several of the recently conserved properties that DOS has partnered with for our annual Delaware Bird-a-Thon fundraiser. There will be a chance of seeing the resident Sandhill Cranes and other waterbirds.

Registration is required and the trip will be limited to 12 boats.  RSVP to [email protected] providing your name, contact information, names of people & the number of boats in your party.
