The Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is located along the eastern coast of Delaware on Delaware Bay and spans 15,978 acres. Established in 1937 and originally called the Bombay Hook Migratory Waterfowl Refuge, the refuge was created as a breeding ground for migratory and wintering waterfowl. However, the refuge is home to many species from horseshoe crabs, to migratory geese, to deer.
The refuge contains five hiking trails varying in distance with three observation towers and a 12 mile auto road, all open to visitors wanting to observe and photograph wildlife. Public hunting is also permitted in certain regulated areas in state hunting season. Inside the refuge you’ll also find the Allee House, a well preserved 18th century farmhouse. However, as of September 2015 it is currently closed for repairs (according to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service website).
Our Bombay Hook Quarter singles are shipped in 2x2 coin flips and are taken from original U.S. Mint bags. Your choice of P or D mint can be selected above.
