Registration and Itinerary


Join us on our most popular weekend getaway trip, rich in wildlife, ecology and conservation.  Explore the Chincoteague National Refuge Center with a naturalist or park ranger to learn how the Center balances migrating birds, endangered species and people. 

Visit the famous red and white Assateague lighthouse and perhaps even climb the 198 steps to the top. Take a naturalist-accompanied “Behind the Scenes” Wildlife Safari, where you will see the legendary ponies up close and learn the legends of the wild ponies that have inhabited these islands since the 1600s. There will be time for lunch and exploring Chincoteague on your own before re-boarding the motor coach to go back to Philadelphia.
