Delta, American Airlines, and South-West are not the only ones who fly, in and out of Philladelphia. Rite beside the air port thousands of migrating birds come flying in and out of the John Heinz Natial wildlife Refuge.
The John Heinz Natial Wildlife Refuge is a large area of land and water, woods and marsh, at the mouth of Darby creek where it flows into the Delaware river, which soon flows into the Ocen. Because of it’s location Heinz has both tidal waters from the ocen, and fresh water from Darby crek. The Heinz Refuge is a easy place to go for Free! And theres lots to explore.
Heinz has a lot of helpful guides who will take you on a bird walks, Butterfly walks, and tree walks, and show you Nature and cool things you can learn. Sometimes Heinz offers special events for school children, and other special day events like, the fall festival, fishing day, groundhog day, and astronomy nights. Sometimes Heinz invites the Philladelphia zoo or the Franklin Institute to do Presentation. Look on the enternet for “Heinz Refuge calendar of events,” or find “John Heinz Wildlife Refuge” on Face Book.
There is a lot of things you can do by your self at the Heinz Refuge. Go for a jog or ride your bike on the trails. You could even take a picnic. Look for birds and nests in the trees, (Don’t freget to borrew a binocular at the front desk.) or stumble apon a turtle laying eggs. For several years bald eagles have nested on an island in the middle of the marsh! Go fishing, that sounds like fun! But if you cech a snake head fish you sould kill it. (That’s a rule!)
Any seson of the year The John Heinz Natinal Wildlife Refuge is a loveliy place to get lost in a beautiful place of Nature.
