Kent County Icons: Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge


Unquestionably Delaware’s best-know birding site for more than 75 years, this federal sanctuary near Smyrna lives up to its reputation with exceptional bird and wildlife viewing 365 days a year. Its 16,000 acres feature a cornucopia of habitats, including one of the largest expanses of unaltered salt marsh in the mid-Atlantic region and more than 1,100 acres of impounded freshwater pools. There is an auto tour route, visitor center, observation towers and nature trails providing opportunities to experience the natural world around you. (bombayhook.fws.gov)
