Eastern Shore Of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

Lying at the tip of the Delmarva Peninsula, the Eastern Shore of Virginia National Wildlife Refuge serves as one of the country's most valuable stopovers for migratory birds. Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay, this 1,127-acre refuge was established in 1984 for migratory birds and endangered species management and for wildlife-dependent recreation including interpretation and education. This area is one of the most important avian migration funnels in North America. Each fall, like colorful clockwork, the refuge is the scene of a spectacular drama as millions of songbirds and monarch butterflies and thousands of raptors converge at the tip of the peninsula on their voyage south.

Directions:

From the Hampton Roads area, take US 13 North across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and take the first right onto Seaside Road (Route 600). The next two roads to the right are refuge entrances. From points north, take US 13 South to the bottom of the Delmarva Peninsula and take the last left before the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel onto Seaside Road (Route 600). The next two roads to the right are refuge entrances.
