BBNWR Winter Waterfowl Walk, December 2011

Checked out our calendar lately?  If so then you have seen that we added a long list of events going on out at the Refuge during June and July.  Our friend Erica, Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge Ranger, brought over copies of the Summer Brochure last week for us to share with our friends.  Stop by and pick one up!

If you cannot make it to our office to get your own copy, here’s the scoop on all the fun activities going on at the Refuge this summer:

Attention kids ages 6-12!  There’s a new and exciting program called Back Bay Biology Adventures just for you!  It’s a shortened version of the Junior Rangers Program run by the National Park Service and Ranger Erica is pretty pumped about this new event and you should be, too!  Get out to BBNWF to have fun learning about turtles, fish and all the different animals that call Back Bay home.

Don’t you just love the scenery in Sandbridge?  One of the best ways to soak up all the natural beauty is from the comfort of your bicycle seat.   Pedal on out to the stellar event Back Bay Bike Exploration and be lead by the park’s knowledgeable Rangers on a scenic tour to the Wildlife Viewing Window.  Watch in awe as you witness the captivating waterfowl and various wildlife thriving in their natural environment.

Want to brush up on your turtle trivia?  Head out to Turtle Talk where you can learn all about the fascinating sea and freshwater turtles found in Back Bay and Sandbridge.  You’ll be amazed at the things you learn about these cool critters!

The Blue Goose Tram service is offering morning and evening tours!  Hop on and take a ride on this open air bus to have a relaxing and educational ride through Back Bay to False Cape.  Volunteers from Back Bay Restoration Foundation will educate you on the history of the area.
