Milford Point canoe tours

Here is a message from the Coastal Center Director, Frank Gallo:

Canoe tours through the Charles E. Wheeler Salt Marsh at Milford Point begin on June 4 & 5th. This is a great opportunity to get access to the remote recesses of the marsh where elusive species such as, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Marsh Wren, and Saltmarsh Sparrow breed. Every season is different. Now is good for shorebirds, herons, and egrets. Come join the fun; no experience is necessary.
