John Heinz Wildlife Refuge
Established in 1972, John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum is America's First Urban Refuge, and a green respite nestled within the urban setting of Philadelphia. Refuge lands are a thriving sanctuary teeming with a rich diversity of fish, wildlife, and plants native to the Delaware Estuary. Healthy and productive expanses of freshwater tidal marsh, open waters, mudflats, and woodlands support the hundreds of species that breed, rear their young, rest during migration, or call the refuge home year-round.
