Event description

Description

In partnership with the best environmental educators from across Philadelphia, we're collaborating to create a series of free tours of the city's hidden gems of sustainability-focused learning. Families with children of all ages are invited to join our upcoming events. Lunch will be included.

Please be sure to RSVP. Space is limited.

For our third event, catch a view of some of the 300 bird species who visit this 1,000 acre green-space! Help the refuge collect litter to keep wildlife safe and enjoy a free lunch, a tour of the new Visitor Center Exhibit Hall, and a birdwatching adventure!

John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum is America's First Urban Refuge and was established in 1972 for the purpose of preserving, restoring, and developing the natural area known as Tinicum Marsh, to promote environmental education, and to afford visitors an opportunity to study wildlife in its natural habitat.

The refuge is a green respite nestled within the urban setting of the city of Philadelphia. Refuge lands are a thriving sanctuary teeming with a rich diversity of fish, wildlife, and plants native to the Delaware Estuary. Healthy and productive expanses of freshwater tidal marsh, open waters, mudflats, and woodlands support the hundreds of species that breed, rear their young, rest during migration, or call the refuge home year-round.

Tour supported in part by CUSP, in partnership with the Philadelphia Office of Sustainability.
