Upcoming Events

 
  • From Soup to Owls

    6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

    Gather at WVWA Headquarters for a light supper of soup and banter of owls and birds. Warmed over, we’ll then go to the Willow Lake Preserve in search of owls under the light of the full moon. With early spring, Screech Owl, Great Horned Owl and even the Barred Owl can be heard or less seldom seen in local nature sanctuaries. Led by WVWA Executive Director Dennis Miranda, learn the voice calls and responses of neighborhood owls and their life history. Join us, it will be a hoot!

  • Rain Barrel Workshop

    7:00 p.m.

    Back by popular demand, you’ll make your own take-away rain barrels. Rain barrels reduce runoff, collect storm water for later use, and save time and money. Learn how to install and use your own rain barrel in this informative workshop. Each participant will assemble a rain barrel to take home. So bring a vehicle large enough to transport your new rain barrel!

  • Rain Garden Workshop

    7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

    Come learn about the most beautiful way to conserve water - building your own rain garden! Simple to install and maintain, rain gardens are indeed a thing of beauty. Rain gardens also help to protect water quality by reducing stormwater runoff from your property.  Learn where to site, how to build and what to plant in your rain garden.

  • Tree ID Walk with Ken LeRoy

    10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

    Join Arborist Ken LeRoy on a tree-themed exploration of Armentrout Preserve and Camp Woods.  Located in Whitpain Township, the Armentrout Preserve loop trail connects with the Camp Woods trail.  We’ll visit the quiet woods of Beech, Tulip-poplar, and Hickory that are bordered by open fields
