LWC "Celebrate Birds" Bird Walk

While bird migration is a year-round phenomenon, from late April through early June millions of birds migrate through our area. While some of these will stay and nest in our area, many will continue their journey north. As a result it is possible to find and observe over 100 species of birds in a single day. To celebrate this, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy is presenting a program on warblers, the “jewels” of the eastern forests, holding a number of walks, and sponsoring a Birdathon between May 1 and May 15.

One of these walks will be held at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship (BRCES) on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 8:00 a.m.  This walk will be led by Joe Coleman and Gerry Hawkins. The 895 acres at the BRCES has vernal pools, meadows, ponds, streams and a rich oak-hickory forest. Located in northwestern Loudoun County, the center not only borders the Appalachian Trail, it is only a couple of miles from the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers, and serves as a wonderful sanctuary for Loudoun’s wildlife.

Location:  Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship.  Please meet in the parking lot between Mountain View Farm & the Education Center at 8:00am.
