The Friends of Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge’s popular Jitney tours resume with Autumn Adventures at Forsythe beginning September 8. Tour the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in an iconic sky blue retired Atlantic City Jitney. Join with a guide to appreciate the wonders of nature as seen from the Wildlife Drive. Learn historical anecdotes, explanations of Refuge operations, ecological insights, and view migratory waterfowl and other wildlife - all in sight of the Atlantic City skyline. The tours are scheduled for each Saturday afternoon starting September 8th, and continue through October 27th. The tours leave the Visitor Information Center parking lot at 1:00 PM. Tours take approximately two hours.
Each tour stops at Gull Pond Tower. The view from this tower affords the visitor a panorama of freshwater habitat, salt marshes, and the back bays. Other stops are varied and are determined by to the wildlife observed. Every trip is different and the unexpected is to be expected!
