Registration is closed

Adult program

This program has been canceled due to heavy rains.

Visit this unique swampland where one of Southern Maryland's most eye-popping warblers makes its home. The Prothonotary Warbler will be in full song, setting up its breeding territories. Our leader, Gene Groshon has been banding Prothonotaries in this location for several years. Our goal will be to identify individual warblers that have just returned from Venezuela, Colombia or Mexico to the Cypress Swamp to nest again. The Sanctuary includes a boardwalk through the swamp, so the birding should be excellent at the height of spring migration.

Location: Battle Creek Cypress Swamp

 DIRECTIONS: About 2 mi south of Prince Frederick, MD on Rt 4, turn south on Sixes Road (Rt 506). in 2 miles turn left on Grays Road. Proceed for about a quarter mile to Sanctuary entrance on the right.

Fee is per person. Free 

Registration Deadline:  Thursday April 27

Naturalist in Charge: Gene Groshon
