The 150-acre James Farm Ecological Preserve, managed by the Delaware Center for the Inland Bays, is an oasis of wild land on Indian River Bay. From the sandy beach at low tide, over three miles of trails traverse a variety of salt marsh, meadow, and maritime forest habitats. The preserve was gifted by the late Mary Lighthipe, a descendant of the James family who had farmed the land for generations, on condition that the property be used for environmental education and recreational activities. On this tour we will walk the trails, discuss ongoing improvements to the preserve, and participate in a fish seining activity. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Limit - 20 participants
