Winter Waterfowl Walks
Winter is an exciting time in Back Bay. One of the unique characteristics of Back Bay is that is an important stop along the Atlantic Flyway for migrating waterfowl.
The walks are free, but reservations are appreciated. Winter weather can be unpredictable, and the walks will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather. Please call 301-7329 to make your reservation.
Join us on a one-mile hike along Back Bay NWR’s Bay Trail, guided by expert birders. We will observe and enjoy the variety of waterfowl that feed and rest here during the winter months! Bring your camera and binoculars!
