Bird and Nature Walk
July begins a quieter time for birding, with the hustle and bustle of breeding season winding down. However, there is still much to see and explore at this scenic 224-acre sanctuary and preserved estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Meet in the visitor parking lot west of the main entrance. Bring binoculars if you have them and dress for the weather. Sturdy shoes are recommended as all footpaths are unpaved and uneven with one steep hill to navigate. Beginning birders and children (accompanied by an adult) are welcome and encouraged to join.
Masks are not required for this outdoor program, although VFAS encourages all participants to be fully vaccinated and asymptomatic to attend. This will be a walk of 1-2 miles and will last approximately 2 hours. A portable restroom is on site.
