Interested in birding? Come out for eBird Tuesdays on the museum grounds. Join local birders, Ward Museum staff, and Salisbury University students and faculty collect data on local migrating bird populations.

Your visit isn’t complete without browsing the galleries and Treetops Gifts. The galleries feature changing exhibits in addition to the permanent galleries showcasing namesake Lem & Steve Ward and the history of decoy carving. Treetops has unique gifts and home decor. Know that when you shop Treetops you are supporting a local business, your community and a 501(3)c organization. Hand-made soaps, jewelry and hand-crafted home decor are just a few of the many items available in Treetops.
