Walk across the Indian River Inlet bridge Friday mornings
The Indian River Inlet and its towering Charles W. Cullen Bridge serve as one of the area’s most recognizable landmarks. While many people are familiar with what it has become now, few truly understand just how much the landscape has changed over the years. On Fridays at 9 a.m., Delaware Seashore State Park interpreters will lead a walk over the bridge to explore the dynamic forces and history that have molded the Indian River Inlet and the surrounding lands over the past two centuries. Along the way, walkers will learn to identify common birds and plant life in the area. The cost of the program is $4 per person, and preregistration is required as space is limited. For more information or to register, call 302-227-6991 or go to destateparks.com.
