Bird Viewing Tours

For the 2018 Swan Days Festival on December 8, all tram tour participants must park at Mattamuskeet School and take a Hyde Transit bus to Mattamuskeet National Wildlife Refuge headquarters. Please do not drive your vehicle to the refuge, as there will be no designated parking area at the refuge for tram tour participants. When you reach the refuge, you will be transferred to another Hyde Transit bus that will shuttle you to the trams, a distance of about seven miles. Tour guides will be on the trams to assist you in viewing large numbers of migratory birds. It is important that everyone with a confirmed reservation for a tram tour report to the buses at Mattamuskeet School at the time provided when you made your reservation. We will announce the date that reservations will open. No early reservations will be accepted so please do not call until the designated date.
