Start the year off with a hike starting at the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad State Park & Visitor Center.

2020 is the Year of the Woman and in honor of Harriet Tubman, join Team Tubman at 10am for a 1.5-mile hike on the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge’s Wildlife Drive. Hike along the Blackwater River and see Canada and snow geese, tundra swans, bald eagles, ducks, sika deer and other wildlife found in South Dorchester County. This will be an easy hike perfect for families. The wildlife drive is flat and paved. Pets are not permitted in the refuge. Guests are welcome to enjoy hot cocoa and light refreshments after the hike. Then explore the Tubman Visitor Center and learn about the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman, an American shero.

Meet at the lobby of the Tubman Visitor Center a little before 10am. The hike is free, but donations are appreciated.

Flex your Harriet Tubman and Underground Railroad knowledge by participating in Tubman Trivia at 1:30pm – the top two teams will receive a prize! Take your experience further and become a Junior Ranger or visit the research library. Registration is required. Please e-mail Ranger Angela Crenshaw ( to register and for information about the event.
