Lifelong Adventure: Winter Birds

  • 10:00am Friday, December 06, 2019 - 6:00pm Sunday, December 08, 2019

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. We may also encounter Black Bears during our refuge rambles. Short hikes and easy viewing from the Museum bus make this an ideal trip for both novice and seasoned birders.

Registration for Lifelong Hikes and Adventures just got easier. With our new online ticketing system, we can process credit card payments, easily issue refunds, and collect all of your information in one place.
