Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge
GSWA Members: Free

Join us on this special GSWA “Members Only” hike at the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. This will be an exciting opportunity for us to seek out wildlife as it prepares for the coming winter. Come see the beautiful winter stalks of a variety of plants that call the refuge home. Many different species of wildfowl will be found making their winter homes in the impoundments of the Great Swamp Refuge, along with mammals such as coyote and fox. Resident birds will also be busy searching for seeds and berries throughout the area. We will be on the lookout for all of this, as we take in the beauty of the amazing lands that form part of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge Management area. Dress warmly, and enjoy the cusp of winter. Registration required. We will meet at the Bluebird Parking Lot on Pleasant Plains Road. The bluebird lot is approx. 1.5 miles down Pleasant Plains Rd past the Helen C. Fenske Visitors Center. If you have any questions, you may call our hike leader, Dan Ross, at 908-892-7253
