Highlights of the day will be access to closed areas of the refuge on Bachelor Island and down to the Ridgeport Dairy Unit during a very good period for spring migrants.  
            
It is important that you sign up with an email address or phone number in order to be contacted in case of a late cancelation of the trip. Otherwise you may show up and no one is at the meeting place.
