It’s Global Big Day at Wye Marsh!

What is Global Big Day?

Global Big Day has become a May tradition for tens of thousands of eBirders: 24 hours to put your favorite park/county/state/province country/continent on the global birding stage. Global Big Day 2022 also falls on World Migratory Bid Day!

There are so many fascinating birds passing through Wye Marsh Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI) that staff and volunteers will be conducting a bird count all day long.

We hope you will join us to bird, or to take part in some of these awesome activities all included with the price of admission on May 14, 2022.

9:30am – Selfies with a Raptor in the Birds of Prey Field, donations to the care of the Birds of Prey accepted.

11:00am – Exploring the Marsh with Staff on a Discovery Hike

1:00pm – Bird of Prey Demonstration featuring native species

2:00pm – Swan Landing Ceremony, where we will be recognizing our generous supporters and reflect on the tremendous success of our Trumpeter Swan Reintroduction Program, and celebrate our Volunteer of the Year
