"All the conservation, preservation and education we do......It's for the birds!"
The Northern Neck Audubon Society will hold its April meeting on Monday, April 2, at the Lancaster County Library in Kilmarnock (GPS:16 Town Centre Drive, Kilmarnock). Join us for refreshments at 3:00, followed by a program on Our Wonderful Wood Warblers presented by award-winning nature photographer Bob Schamerhorn at 3:30.
On Saturday, March 24, the Northern Neck Audubon Society (NNAS) will conduct a bird walk at 9:00 am at Hickory Hollow Natural Area Preserve in Lancaster County. Hickory Hollow offers 3.5 miles of wooded footpaths that meander through 254 acres of second growth deciduous forest, ravines, and swampland.
On Monday April 9 at 1:00 pm the Northern Neck Audubon Society will conduct a bird walk at Dameron Marsh Natural Area Preserve in Northumberland County. This 316 acre preserve lies on a peninsula jutting into the Chesapeake Bay. Dameron Marsh contains one of the most significant wetlands on the Chesapeake Bay for marsh-bird communities, and its pristine beach habitat is highly important for the federally threatened northeastern beach tiger beetle (Cicindela dorsalis dorsalis). Dameron Marsh supports impressive salt marsh communities, sand beach, and upland forest habitats.
Sponsored by NAPS (Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship), a section of the Heathsville Farmer's market will include special exhibits, vendors and activities -- all with an environmental theme.
