The Great Marsh Institute Bird Walk


Trip Leader(s): Mike Coulter & Troy Bynum

Join us at the Great Marsh Institute, Chester County’s unique habitat for the study of flora and fauna as well as the unique characteristics of the Periglacial marsh. It is the purpose of the Great Marsh Institute (GMI) to support scientific studies through access to the property, technical support, and opportunities for educational activities including funding for student interns.

The Great Marsh also has an IBA (Important Bird Area) designation of D3 from Audubon.  D3: Sites that contain rare or unique habitat or are an exceptional representative of an ecological community type, and that hold important species or species assemblages largely restricted to a distinctive habitat or ecological community type.

A presentation and light refreshments will be provided after the walk.

A Note About Our Field Trips:
We encourage participants to regularly check both the Wyncote Audubon Society website and Facebook page in advance of a field trip as the meeting location can change due to road construction, a park closure, weather conditions, or other last-minute circumstances. If you have any questions about a field trip, please contact: Plan to arrive a few minutes before the scheduled time of the field trip. The time stated is the STARTING time, not the arrival time. This will give you time to get yourself ready, say hello, visit a restroom, and be ready to go. For all-day trips, please come prepared with lunch and have a full tank of gas. 

PARTICIPANT RELEASE: Audubon field trips or events signify that I agree to not hold the Wyncote Audubon Society or any of its agents responsible for any accidents, losses, damages, or injuries resulting from my participation in the field trip or event.
