Early Winter Trail Hike at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge

Title: Early Winter Trail Hike at Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge
Location: Missisquoi NWR, Swanton, Vermont
Date: 2012-01-07

Description: Join Friends of Missisquoi NWR Board member, Joe Belanger for an educational nature walk on the Jeep Trail on Saturday, January 7, 2012 from 9AM – 12 PM. Get out and take a walk on the refuge and discuss some tips, tricks and techniques for interesting nature photography. Bring your camera and binoculars and join Joe for an enjoyable few hours in the great outdoors as we move into early winter. The Jeep trail is level and easy to walk but participants should wear sturdy, warm footwear. The Jeep trail is closed for the majority of the year to promote nesting of many species on the refuge such as osprey, great blue herons, and many waterfowl species. This walk through towering, mature, silver maple, swamp white oaks and cottonwood trees offers opportunities to see some of our resident species such as pileated woodpeckers, whitetail deer, and others who call the Refuge home in the toughest conditions of the year. Meet at the Louie’s Landing parking lot on RT. 78, 3 miles west of the town of Swanton. The group will travel down to the Macs Bend boat launch area and embark on the Jeep Trail walk at this point. 29 Tabor Rd., Swanton, VT 05488-8148 Phone: 802/868-4781 Fax: 802/868-2379
