There are spaces available on upcoming canoe tours of the 840-acre Wheeler Saltmarsh at Milford Point. Yellow-crowned Night-Herons, Marsh Wrens, Willets and a slew of migrating shorebirds have been around lately. Come for a scenic paddle and enjoy our wonderful birdlife. There are two trips scheduled this weekend and trips continue through October. We hope you can join the fun!
Life is short. Bird often.
