Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, Maryland Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Located on the eastern shores of Maryland, the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, encompasses 27,000 acres of land. Blackwater is a refuge for endangered wildlife, from mammal species to birds. Blackwater is a paradise for bird watchers, and is a haven for the birds themselves as they travel over the Atlantic Flyway on their trip south. This, and the fur trapping of muskrats, was the primary reason for the development of the wildlife refuge, in 1933.

The refuge provides a sanctuary for the endangered Bald Eagle, and the peregrine falcon. Many other species of fowl, and mammal call this refuge home, including otters, foxes, elk and deer. The refuge features a butterfly garden, and a visitor center complete with wildlife exhibits, films, an auditorium for special programs and a gift shop.

There is also a wildlife drive available at Blackwater, consisting of a six and one half mile loop that can be traversed by car, bicycle or foot. Passing through the wetlands, and forests visitors can view animals in their respective habitats along the way.

Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge is located in Cambridge, Maryland and is northwest of Salisbury.
