Carl Linhart WMBD Bike Ride at Seney Wildlife Refuge

This World Migratory Bird Day outing is dedicated to Carl Linhart as it was a favorite place of his. Plan for a full day at Seney Wildlife Refuge via bicycle. There is a wonderful trail system at Seney and this will be a great time of year to see birds. We'll do the inner 7-mile loop stopping along the way to view migrating birds in the man-made impoundments. This trip is 10 miles one way, making for a long but very interesting day.
