Participants will meet at the Senior Center at 9:00 am Monday to carpool to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Seniors who have a National Parks “Senior Pass”, should bring it with them. For others, the entry charge is $5 per car.
Once there, visitors will spend 2-3 hours exploring the Plum Island portion of the refuge. The park features diverse habitats and abundant wildlife. If you plan to join them, you’re encouraged to bring binoculars, a camera, and dress in layers.
