Discovering the Wild in Winter undefined Saturday, February 4, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Join Phil Daley, Paul Miller, and Jim McWalters as they explore the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship (BRCES) during winter. While many people stay indoors during the cold months, others enjoy the beauty of a season when the sky can be so clear you can see forever and the sun casts the longest shadows. During this free winter hike, watch for the many birds, insects, and mammals that overwinter here and examine some of the plants to see how they adapt to temperatures that dip below freezing. The BRCES comprises 900 acres in northwestern Loudoun County, just north of Neersville, at 11611 Harpers Ferry Road, Rte 671. Meet at the Education Center. Detailed directions can be found at www.brces.org. Registration Required: Sign Up Online or contact Phil Daley at pdaley@loudounwildlife.org or 540-338-6528
