Pickering Creek is a successful partnership between Audubon Maryland-DC and the Chesapeake Audubon Society, a chapter of the National Audubon Society. Envisioned as a place to learn about the environment, and the unique ecosystems of the Chesapeake Bay region, Margaret Strahl and her brother, George Olds donated to the Chesapeake Audubon Society in 1984. It was their wish that all members of the community, whether watermen, farmers, birders, painters, naturalists, children or adults, would have access to the property. For this reason, Pickering Creek is free and open to the public everyday from dawn to dusk. On any day, you can enjoy a wonderful stroll through the woods, wetlands, and along the creek. Keep your eyes open for a variety of wildlife like Bald Eagles, the endangered Delmarva Fox Squirrel, Blue Herons, and Waterfowl.
