FIELD TRIP TO FOR THE NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE No charge. Registration deadline: September 20. Self-transport and self-pay lunch. FIELD TRIP Join Medford Leas residents for this popular field trip to the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Brigantine, NJ. This National Wildlife Refuge protects more than 47,000 acres of coastal habitats which are actively managed for migratory birds. The location on the Atlantic Flyway’s most active flight paths, makes it an important link in seasonal bird migration. Its value for the protection of water birds and their habitat continues to increase as the New Jersey shore area is developed for human use. You will likely see a variety of wintering waterfowl, shorebirds, and a few raptors on this trip. In particular you could expect to see Bald Eagles, Atlantic Brant, Green-winged Teal, Northern Pintail, and Ring-necked Ducks. Bring along your binoculars and meet the group at the Medford Campus Community Building for departure at 8:00 am. The group will return at approximately 4:00 pm. Lunch (self-pay) will be at Shea’s Café and Bakery in Galloway, NJ. All participants will need to provide their own transportation.
