Experience the best of year-round birding and wildlife watching on the Delmarva Peninsula

The Delmarva Birding Weekends (DBWs) celebrate the best of year-round birding and wildlife watching on the Delmarva Peninsula. The region possesses an extensive variety of environments, including barrier islands, tidal wetlands, cypress swamps, upland fields and primeval forests. Field trips by boat, kayak and on foot take place in the land and water that feed into the Chesapeake and Delaware Bays and the Atlantic coastal bays. More than 400 bird species have been recorded on the peninsula.

Participants help birds by promoting bird and habitat conservation through sustainable tourism. According to a 2016 survey, 86 million Americans watched wildlife and spent $75.9 billion on their favorite pastime.

The DBWs include full weekends with multiple field trips, as well as day trips every month of the year. Experiences can also be customized for individuals and organizations.

Save these dates! Registration will open for both events on November 1, 2017.
