The peak of the waterfowl migration is approaching so now is a great time to explore Montezuma’s marshes. Join us for a tour of the marshes at Montezuma to see dozens of species of ducks, geese and swans as they settle into Montezuma’s marshes to feed and rest.
We’ll start out at the Visitor Center for 10 minutes and then head out on the Seneca Trail for a short walk to the observation tower and back. Then we’ll carpool over to the South and North Spring pools for additional bird observations (some walking involved). We can then head up to May’s point for an additional observation tower and points. Returning to the Visitor Center, those interested can continue on to the 3.5 mile Wildlife drive.
If you’d like to spend more time at the Visitor Center/Lodge Nature Store, plan on arriving early, as they both close at 4 pm.
*BRING: binoculars, field guides, camera and tripod optional, dress for the weather. Be prepared for wet/muddy areas. If you have extra binoculars, please bring to share.
How to Find us: We will meet on the Visitor Center porch (or inside).
Address: 3396 Hwy 20, Seneca Falls, NY 13148
Optional: Let's have DINNER at the food court at the del Lago Casino.
This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors. Non-members are invited to join us on two events to see what you think. The third time's a charm - we'll ask you to join Women Outdoors at that point. You can join now by clicking on Join Us.
