By Jack Kelly

(Photo by Jack Kelly) (Photo by Jack Kelly) The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has announced that a photo blind, in the Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge's marsh area will open on March 20, the first day of spring. Located in the southeast corner of the marsh, the blind is situated so that visitors can observe wildlife species from the edge of their habitats. It will be open during all four seasons and will provide nature lovers with a platform for photo opportunities. The blind is small enough for a comfortable experience and to disguise it from wildlife, but is large enough to allow for up to four observers.

There are provisos for use, including obtaining a no-charge special use permit from the USFWS. Special use parking permits and IDs can be obtained in person at the Sachuest Point Visitors’ Center, daily from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. or online at http://www.fwsgov/refuge/Sachuest Point/visit/visitorsactivities. html. For information call 847-5511.
