Why You Should Visit
The preserve is a birder's delight, where one finds undisturbed waterfowl habitat and a sanctuary for bald eagles. May is the best time for birdwatching, when migration is at a peak; summer brings a proliferation of flowering plants and marsh grasses; fall brings migrating birds, highlighted by warblers and puddle ducks.
Just over 2 hours east of Washington, DC
