Celebrate the spring winged migration through the Hackberry Flat Wetlands, 7,120-acres of wildlife recreational opportunities located just southwest of Frederick. Attend one of the Bird Migration Tours available from mid-April through the first of May to see migrating ducks, shorebirds and songbirds who are stopping in the wetlands to refuel for their continued journey north. Families can explore the vast mosaic of wetland habitats for prairie waterfowl, shorebirds and other wetland-dependent birds. 

Participants will tour the wetland in a seated, open-air trailer and discover wetland bird species, as well as other wildlife, using the Hackberry Flat Wildlife Management Area during spring migration. While touring the area, a wildlife biologist will explain how the wetland is managed for wetland-dependent birds and other wildlife. 

Participants should be prepared for the tour by dressing for the forecasted weather. Wool blankets and binoculars are provided. And, as always, participants at any of the tours are exempt from requiring a current hunting/fishing license or Wildlife Conservation Passport while at Hackberry Flat that day. 

Due to the length of the tour, children must be at least eight years old.
