Lifelong Adventure: Winter Birds

  • 10:00am Friday, December 02, 2022 - 6:00pm Sunday, December 04, 2022

Lake Mattamuskeet and Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuges host one of the largest concentrations of winter birds along the East Coast. Learn how to identify waterfowl, raptors and other bird species. Short hikes and easy viewing from the Museum bus make this an ideal trip for both novice and seasoned birders.
