Trail to Bay Hike: Border Field State Park

SIGN UP

Thanks for your interest in joining us for our Trail to Bay Challenge hike at Border Field State Park. Located along the International Border (thus the park’s namesake), this state park is home to the least terns, rails, and a wide array of butterfly species. If you’ve ever wondered what the landscape looks like for habitats at sea level that are often under the water during high tides, this is a great opportunity to find out. You’ll also have the chance to see unique caster bean plants and other surprising wildlife.
