After our visit to Ardenwood Farm on Saturday, the Bioscouts headed over to the wildlife refuge nearby to do some birdwatching.
After orienting ourselves at the visitor center, we walked out to Newark Slough and walked the Tidelands Loop. We were surprised to find that dogs are permitted on the trails, and began to feel pangs of guilt about leaving the dogscout at home. We encountered a variety of bird species, though not in large numbers.
We enjoyed watching the grebes disappear on their long submarine dives. Michael found some good salt crystal specimens.
