Because of the weather forecast for this Saturday, the Charles Town Bird Count will take place on Sunday December 15.
PVAS's 13th annual This Race is for the Birds is set for Saturday April 5, 2014. Mark your calendars for this fantastic opportunity to run on the beautiful trails of the National Conservation Training Center. Registration is open!
Just a reminder...even though it's getting quite cool, you want to keep using insect repellent when out and about in the woods at this time of year. Ticks in this area can carry Lyme Disease and mosquitoes can carry West Nile Virus. Why give them the chance to bite you?
