Bird WatchingJoin a park naturalist on this ADA-accessible Bird Walk from the Dismal Swamp Boat Ramp. This linear park is a reclaimed roadway that parallels the historic Dismal Swamp Canal; together the park and canal form the eastern boundary of the Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. This walk is part of the refuge's annual Birding Festival and timed for the arrival of the spring migration. Adults only.

Bring your own binoculars or borrow a pair from us while supplies last, contact scallahan@cityofchesapeake.net to reserve your binoculars. Dress warmly as we will be outside the entire time in search of wildlife.

Registration is done through the Dismal Swamp Nation Wildlife Refugelinks to external site at: 757-986-3705, greatdismalswamp@fws.gov or online at: https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Great_Dismal_Swamp/
