You’re invited to join the Eco Ministry for a trip to the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, January 13, 2018.
The refuge, established in 1972, is America’s first urban wildlife refuge. Its purpose is to preserve, restore, and develop the natural area known as the Tinicum Marsh. The 1,200 acre refuge includes over 200 acres of the last remaining freshwater tidal marsh in Pennsylvania. It contains a wide diversity of plants and animals.
There are trails to follow and a visitor center with exhibits that feature the plants, wildlife, and their habitats at Heinz NWR. The refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
We will meet at church at 9:00 am. Tom Reeves will lead the group. You can find additional information on their website.
