 Birds, Butterflies & Wildflowers Walk.

Sunday, September 6, 9:00 a.m. at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship. 

Join Emily Southgate, Robin Williams and Joe Coleman of the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, and the Piedmont Chapter of the Virginia Native Plant Society for a general bird, butterfly, and wildflower walk at this beautiful 900-acre preserve in northwestern Loudoun County. Several of the fields at the Blue Ridge Center as well as the power line, also known as Butterfly Alley, are managed so that native plants and grasses and everything that depends on them can thrive. At this time of year we should see numerous butterflies and other pollinators using the summer wildflowers as well as early migrating birds who depend on the insects and the seeds of these wildflowers and native grasses.

The Blue Ridge Center is located on Harpers Ferry Road, and borders the Appalachian Trail only a couple of miles south of the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers ─ all of this combines for some of the richest diversity in the county.
