This will be a leisurely day hike of about 6 miles at the Wye Island Natural Resource Management Area. Formerly a series of plantations and farms, Wye Island is now a wildlife refuge and home at this time of the year to many migratory birds (mostly Canada Geese). We will be hiking through part of the refuge out to the bay side of the island. Please note that although dogs are allowed, they will need to be leashed because of the large number of birds that are likely to be present.

Afterwards we will get lunch at the Kent Narrows on the way back to the carpool in Annapolis.

Required Items to Bring:
- Sturdy hiking shoes
- Warm layered clothing
- Rain gear
- Money for Bay Bridge toll and lunch
Recommended Items to Bring:
