Refuge Tours

NEWBURYPORT, MA — Join a refuge ranger for a behind the scenes tour of Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Tours will be offered on Fri., October 11 at 9:30 a.m.; Sat., October 12 at 9:30 a.m.; Sun., October 13 at 1:00 p.m.; Fri., October 18 at 9:30 a.m.; Sat., October 26 at 9:30 a.m.; and Sun., October 27 at 1:00 p.m. Tours are conducted via refuge van, with several brief “drive by” stops along the way.

The tour will present an “up close and personal” look at the refuge through the multiple lenses of the cultural history of Plum Island and the Great Marsh, native wildlife and their habitats, and the role of refuge management in the conservation of these precious natural resources. Participants may be driven along areas on the refuge otherwise closed to the public.

This guided two hour program is most appropriate for older teens and adults. Binoculars and/or a camera are recommended, but not required. Meet the ranger in the lobby of the Headquarters visitor center. Each session is limited to ten participants; no more than four individuals per sign- up. Again, this is a vehicle-based tour, with limited stops on the Refuge.

Advance registration is required for this program, as enrollment is limited. Registrations are not confirmed until the registrant receives a phone call from a member of the refuge staff. For additional information or to register, please call 978-465-5753.
