Winter is the best time to see waterfowl at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge. Join HerChesapeake on Saturday, February 23, for a guided bird walk! Tundra swans, snow geese, shovelers, pin tails and many more call Blackwater home during winter months. See how many you can spot as U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Volunteer Coordinator Michele Whitbeck teaches us about these birds and their habitat.

Our bird walk will take place from 9 to 10:30 a.m.

At 11 a.m., we will take a short, guided tour of the nearby Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center (4068 Golden Hill Road Church Creek, MD 21622).

Our field trip will end at noon.
