Event Description

White Deer Tours offers special 2-hour bird watching tours at the former Seneca Army Depot on selected Monday mornings in May and June of this year. For the first time ever, birdwatchers will be able to access the rich habitats of the former Depot, with guidance from an experienced birding expert. Recognized by the Audubon Society as an Important Bird Area, the former Depot has been off-limits to bird watchers for more than 75 years.

Participants in the tours will travel on White Deer Tour buses to specially selected location in the formers Depot, where they will be able to leave the bus and, with the help of the tour leader, explore the nearby habitat. Photography is encouraged. Binoculars will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own.

Fees/Admission

The fee of $40 per person includes access to the former Depot, transportation from the Welcome Center to selected viewing areas, and guidance from Chris Lajewski, as well as insights into the history and mystery of the former Depot from the White Deer Tour staff.
