    Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, August 30th at 10:00 AM for PVAS's Public Program in Morgan County.

    Fish that dwell on land, iguanas that swim in the sea, and home to the largest tortoises on Earth: The Galápagos Islands have mesmerized the world at large for generations. Considered to be a paramount site for conservation, the Galápagos Islands have received a lot of attention since Charles Darwin wrote his famous accounts in 1859.

    Bridget Tinsley, Returned Peace Corps Volunteer and PVAS's Land and Watershed Program Manager, spent the summer of 2016 working in the Islands; she will share a brief history of the islands, and describe the contemporary context of conservation in the Islands. Through vivid photographs, personal narratives, and encounters with local residents, the presentation will describe the milieu of outcomes from such a grand reputation.

    This program is free and everyone is welcome to attend. 

    Directions: 

    We will have an Audubon sign pointing you in the correct direction as well as on the door.

    Please contact Krista Hawley at adultprograms@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026 with any questions you may have.

    PVAS bird expert, Deb Hale, is leading a Hawk Watching trip in the Bolivar Heights section of the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park on Wednesday, September 20.

    The trip will begin at 9:00 AM and last two to three hours.

    Registration is strongly encouraged.

    Participants will meet at the Bolivar Heights parking area. 

    Directions: from the Route 340 traffic light at the entrance to the National Park, turn north onto Washington Street and follow it for about 1/4 mile, then turn north again (left) onto Whitman Avenue; the parking area is at the top of the hill.

    The Hawk Watch will take place in one area near the parking lot, watching for and counting the hawks from that general spot. The group will mostly be stationary, watching for the migration of raptors overhead, starting around mid-morning, the majority primarily being Broad-winged hawks, but also including Red-shouldered, Red-tailed, Cooper's and Sharp-shinned hawks, Osprey, Bald Eagles and Common Ravens, too.

    Those who are not able to attend some of our longer birding hikes may enjoy this opportunity to participate in this watch as it does not require much walking.

    PVAS Workshop Leader: Susan Brookreson

    Join local artist Susan Brookreson for a Nature Sketching Workshop at Cool Spring Preserve. 

    Susan will focus on teaching drawing techniques that quickly capture as much information about the subject being observed in nature as possible; information not always present or obvious in a photo. This type of drawing is useful in the field when you want to come back with enough information to correctly identify the fern, flower, insect, etc. you have observed.  Most importantly, this type of drawing can help you learn to see in more detail the beauty and complexity in nature.  

    This workshop is aimed at those with little or no drawing experience although all levels are welcome.
    Please bring along pencils and a small portable sketchpad.

    Weather permitting, the class will do some drawing outside so please dress accordingly, bring along drinking water and insect repellent. 

    Registration for this workshop is required.

    Please join Purple Martin enthusiast Chip Hussion for this workshop on the basics of starting and maintaining a successful Purple Martin Colony. Learn about the plight of the Purple Martin and how you can help secure the future of this fascinating bird.

    Chip will review his own journey from a novice enthusiast to a confident care-taker of large colonies. He will incorporate the PMCA website (Purple Martin Conservation Association, purplemartin.org) as a wealth of information for anyone wanting to begin their own journey. He looks forward to connecting with individuals to help aid in choosing the correct location at your property, identifying appropriate housing and assisting with ongoing questions or concerns.  He is hoping to work with adults and families alike as they pursue this rewarding hobby. 

    As a child, Mr. Hussion spent much time on or in Lake Erie where there were purple martin houses in the yards of several lakefront homes. All these years later, he remembers hearing the stories of the plight of and survival needs of the purple martins. Carrying those memories forward, he has had purple martin housing up in his yard since 1999, with the first 2-3 years unsuccessful. Since 2003, after putting up new housing, his spring/summers are full of enjoyable activity & chatter!!

    PVAS Trip Leader: Jim Farley

    The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a birding trip to the National Conservation Training Center outside Shepherdstown on Saturday, October 21.

    The trip is free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, but space will be limited and registration by Wednesday, October 16 is required. Children will be welcome.

    After checking in at the guard station, please meet in the 'blue' parking area.

    For more information or any questions you may have, please contact Krista Hawley at adultprograms@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026.

    The bird walk will highlight fall migrants and raptors.

    The Center's 538-acre campus is not normally open to the public, so this is a wonderful opportunity to visit the campus and enjoy their trails while birding. 

    The campus contains a mix of fields and forest, providing good habitat for a rich variety of bird species such as sparrows, juncos, raptors, bluebirds, woodpeckers and waterfowl. One of the highlights of the bird walk is observing NCTC's active eagle nest. 

    The trip will last about two and a half hours and involve walking about two miles over moderate terrain.

    Everyone should plan to wear comfortable walking or hiking boots that can protect against possible muddy trails and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions. It is also a good idea to bring along sunscreen and drinking water.

    PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

    The trip may be cancelled if there is bad weather.

    The Final Attack Trail is located where the Union Army made its final advance to drive the Confederate Army from Maryland, only to be turned back by A.P. Hill's final Confederate counterattack. 

    It is also the location of Antietam National Battlefield's extensive work in the restoration and preservation of native grasslands in the Otto Farm Fields in the southwest corner of the battlefield. Sandy Sagalkin, working with Battlefield staff, has assisted the Battlefield in surveying the grassland birds in the area during the spring and summer of 2014. So far, they have counted 86 species that have used the area as a stopover or residence, including Blue Grosbeaks, Yellow-breasted Chats, Common Yellowthroats, Willow Flycatchers, Prairie Warblers and Grasshopper Sparrows.

    Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions and bring along drinking water.

    Questions: email Krista Hawley

    The PVMN Annual Meeting, Potluck Lunch and Silent Auction is Saturday, October 28 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 

    Please note this year the Annual Meeting will be held at the Hospice of the Panhandle's Education Center (not the Orchard House). Directions are provided below. 

    The purpose of the gathering is to briefly conduct PVMN business, honor our new graduates, and recognize Master Naturalists who have achieved 5-years of active membership as well as socialize with others and, of course, eat.

    Bring a dish to share as well as your own plate, cup, napkin and silverware. (We will have extras in case you forget.) Coffee and lemonade will be provided.

    In addition, bring something for the Silent Auction! The proceeds from this annual auction provide scholarships to next year’s MN class. Ideas for things to contribute are…just about anything from t-shirts, books, food, field guides, crafts, bird items, and other fun stuff! Most items in the auction are in new or like-new condition. Last year we made over $600, which kept the class fee lower for several of this year’s class. We’re looking to make even more this year! And bring your checkbook so you can bid often and high!!

    We also have a book table where used books are available for just $1-$2. Some folks use that table to pass on natural history books/field guides that might be of interest to other MN’s and pick something new at the same time.

    The PVMN Coordinating Committee is seeking volunteers to help with the planning and execution of the Chapter's yearly instructional programming and all of its day-to-day operations...if you have been thinking of joining the Committee, we will have more information available at this meeting!

    We look forward to seeing our fellow Master Naturalists there!

    Topic: The Amazing Songs of the Vesper Sparrow

    Presenter: Wil Hershberger

    Cost: free

    Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, November 8th at 7:00 PM for our regular monthly program.

    Mr. Hershberger, local bird expert, presents “The Amazing Songs of the Vesper Sparrow".

    Wil Hershberger, who lives in Hedgesville, is one of the area's leading naturalists.

    Inspired by Don Kroodsma’s, “The Singing Life of Birds,” Wil started to listen carefully to the songs of Vesper Sparrows. Wil had recorded Vesper Sparrows in southern Berkeley County, WV years ago, but found that they were all gone. The only location with more than one or two male Vesper Sparrows during the breeding season was found to be the Antietam National Battlefield, Sharpsburg, MD. 

    In Wil’s talk we’ll learn about the Vesper Sparrow’s natural history, how we study bird songs, the amazing way we can “see” bird songs, and the fascinating way that Vesper Sparrows compose their songs.

    Wil has been photographing and recording the natural world for more than two decades and his work has been published in magazines, calendars, and books. He is coauthor of "the Songs of Insects", a book and audio CD published by Houghton-Mifflin Company. He is also an instructor of our very popular Birding 101 class.

    His recordings of birds, frogs and insects are archived at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.

    His website can be found at natureimagesandsounds.com

    This program is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

    Topic: Design Considerations: Functionality of Plants in a Garden

    Presenter: James Dillon, Certified Horticulturist

    Cost: free

    Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, February 7th at 10:00 AM for this public program. 

    Ideal gardens provide both visual beauty and environmental benefit. Resilient gardens are designed with a "layered" approach using plants that possess specific traits. Functional and aesthetic design elements like form, habit, leaf/flower texture, and root morphology will be discussed. Bringing these elements together all while keeping pollinators and birds in mind will make the most out of our gardening spaces.

    Making the best plant selections for your landscape is the focus for James Dillon, a certified Horticulturist with over 13 years of experience working in the green industry. With a B.Sc. in Biology from East Carolina University, he views landscape design as the integration science, nature and art. An ecological approach and knowledge of many plant varieties result in plantings that thrive in their environment. James practiced horticulture in the northern DE area, most notably at the Delaware Center for Horticulture, with continuing education at Longwood Gardens. Previously, as manager and buyer of woody plants for a diversified garden center in Chambersburg, PA, James became familiar with a large palette of plant cultivars. Native plant selection, environmental benefits, and low maintenance gardens are emphasized in many designs. James has designed several rain gardens and continues taking coursework on ecological landscape design. James enjoys volunteering for The Monarch Alliance, designing Monarch waystations for them, including the Kiwanis Park in Hagerstown. He owns and operates Native Havens LLC, a small landscape/gardening company based out of his home, where he’s an avid gardener in Kearneysville, WV.

    Admission is free, no registration is needed and everyone is welcome to attend.
