If you are starting to plan your summer vacation a visit to the Nature Conservancy “Nature’s Road Trip” web pages may provide some excellent ideas for birding or a family road trip.
The Road Trip identifies 31 of the Nature Conservancy’s best nature preserves, from the Jersey shore to the Rocky Mountains and the pristine beaches of the west coast.
The web site provides detailed information on each location. Stories from staff-members about their favorite road trips are also included.
The web site offers a great visual tour of the nature preserves even if you do not have the opportunity to visit one yourself.
