Event Type Historic Site Tour/History Description Take a tour of the tidal mudflats of the Rondout Creek in search of migratory birds, shorebirds, and terns. This tour takes place on Solaris, the 100% solar-powered tour boat built by the Hudson River Maritime Museum. The mouth of Rondout Creek provides rich habitat for migrant and local birds alike. Great blue herons, osprey, bald eagles, cormorants, and other local water birds are easy to spot. Bring your binoculars to look out for migrating waterfowl and songbirds. With Solaris' quiet electric motors, you should be able to get up close and personal with all kinds of birds. Led by birding enthusiast Peter Schoenberger, tour the mudflats behind the Rondout Lighthouse, the Sleightsburgh barge graveyard, Sleightsburgh spit, and Port Ewen Bay.
