More than 300 types of birds have been spotted at this Refuge, which is also home to wildlife, including rare turtles & frogs, and wildflowers. A child accompanied by an adult can borrow a rod for fishing or binoculars for birdwatching. Explore by foot (ask for a family activity backpack to supplement your walk), or go canoeing on Darby Creek.

KIDBIT: Ask to borrow a fishing rod or birdwatching binoculars.

FAMILY MUSTS: Throughout the ten miles of trails, families take part in self-guided exploration and wildlife viewing, making use of observation platforms and a kid-favorite boardwalk over the water for easier and more engaging interactions with nature.
