Go wild, Go Birding! on the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge Tram

Join refuge staff as we take a trek around the refuge on International Migratory Bird Day, Saturday May 14. From 9:00 am to noon, we’ll be joining people around the world to celebrate one of the most important and spectacular events in the life of migratory birds—the journey between summer and winter homes. The world of wild birds is bursting with color, sound, and action. Why not come out and enjoy the open-air tram as we not only look for migratory birds but also other wildlife? This is a great time to view plants and wildlife of all shapes and sizes. Learn about birding and all the fun you can have with your family and friends. Whether you’re an avid birder or are just interested in sitting back and enjoying a great morning with nature, plan on participating! Free posters will be given to all participants.
No reservation is required for this FREE tram tour. Space is limited. First come-first seated. Meet at the Creef Cut Trail parking lot situated on Route 64 and Milltail Road west of Manns Harbor. If you need directions or more information, contact Cindy Heffley at 252-475-4180.
