Description

Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge on the Chesapeake Bay needs volunteers to help with visitor orientation, public events, environmental education, citizen-science, trail maintenance, and more!

Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge is a 2,286-acre island surrounded by the Chesapeake Bay and the Chester River, with bridge access, on Maryland's famed Eastern Shore. Its rich biodiversity and beautiful waterfront views attract over 70,000 visitors each year from nearby metropolitan areas (Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington, DC). Five walking trails offer year-round bird-watching, and the refuge is a major staging area for migratory tundra swans. There are many opportunities for volunteers to lead guided nature walks and/or citizen-science surveys of the fauna & flora of Eastern Neck Island. The Island has historical significance as the Colonial home of Captain Lambert Wickes, who transported Benjamin Franklin to France in 1776.
