Location: Eidolon Nature Preserve, 2146 Orleans Rd, Great Cacapon, WV 25422. The entrance is very discreet, with just two short stone pillars holding the gate. There is a sign on a tree near the entrance declaring Eidolon is a public preserve. If you're coming from Jefferson County, plan to meet in the parking lot of the Shepherdstown Food Lion on Route 45 at 8:45 am. If you're coming from Berkeley County, meet at the James Rumsey Technical Institute on west of Martinsburg on Route 9 at 9:10 am. The preserve has very limited parking so carpooling is preferrred. If you're coming from Morgan County or prefer to drive to Eidolon directly from elsewhere, we will be meeting there at around 10:00 am
Pruning sheers, gloves, bags, first aid and clippers will be provided. Coffee, tea, cocoa, water and cookies will also be available. Please bring a picnic lunch, a refillable water bottle and any accessories that will help you stay comfortable (sun wear, bug spray, hats, etc).
