Take a Hike at Cape Henlopen State Park

LEWES (April 25, 2013) – The public is invited to take a hike in the park. On Saturday, May 4 at 11 a.m., naturalists will guide a hike through the Salt Marsh to search for plants and animals working together to survive and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the marsh. The hike is designed for adults and children over seven. The hike will begin at the Biden Center in the park. 

On Tuesday, May 7 at 8 a.m., bird lovers and others will enjoy a hike to look for migrating warblers and other spring birds. Binoculars and field guides will be available to borrow, but visitors can bring their own.  The program, which is suitable for adults and children 10 and older, leaves from the Seaside Nature Center.

For both hikes, participants should wear comfortable shoes or boots that can get wet and muddy, and dress for the weather. There is no fee for either hike, but staff asks that participants pre-register by calling 302-645-6852. Park entrance fees are in effect. More information about public programs at Cape Henlopen or any Delaware State Park is available at
