Marshland and Trails of Accokeek
April 29 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Leader: Marisa Rositol
Spend a spring morning in Piscataway Park along the Potomac River. We will begin on the Accokeek Creek Marsh Boardwalk, which traverses marshland and offers spectacular views of the river and the Virginia shoreline, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate. Ducks, marsh birds and raptors all possible. Boardwalk continues to fields and woods where we will search for migrants and nesting land birds. Time permitting, we will explore other nearby trails of Piscataway Park for upland species.
DIRECTIONS: Meet at Marsh Boardwalk parking lot: From Rt 210 in Accokeek, turn east on Livingston Road. Turn right on Biddle Rd and left on Bryan Point Road. In about 3 miles, take right on entrance road to the Boardwalk lot. RSVP to Marisa at 301-672-7664 or MKRositol@yahoo.com.
