Located at the tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, this area is one of the most important avian migration funnels in North America. Each fall the refuge is the scene of a spectacular drama as millions of songbirds and monarch butterflies and thousands of raptors converge on their voyage south.

Beautiful facility and nice trails. Friendly helpful staff. A really nice place for families, small children and field trips. We will be back in the fall to see the butterflies migrating.
