Following a long-standing policy established by Marsh Warden Emeritus Stiles Thomas, the Celery Farm Natural Area will be closed today, April 1, to give all newly arrived waterfowl time to plan for their upcoming stays at the sanctuary.
We asked bird expert Rob Fanning for his thoughts, and he said he was surprised that more natural areas haven't done the same.
Sorry if you were planning a visit, but policies are policies.
More information follows.
Happy April Fools Day!
