  • Birds & Brews: Winter Birding at Bombay Hook

    10:00 a.m.
    Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge is a wonderful tidal saltmarsh habitat, where we can see lots of cool wintering waterfowl and raptors. Northern shovelers, green-winged teal, tundra swans, snow geese, bald eagles, norther harriers… oh so many things. After what is sure to be some fantastic birding, we can head to Brick Works Brewing and Eats, a brewery about 13 minutes away and basically on the way home.

    Members and friends are invited to join WVWA Board of Directors and staff as we launch our 62nd year. Join us for good cheer and light refreshments at Germantown Academy as we honor the dedication, work and spirit of our community.  

  • Maple Sugaring Festival

    Learn how maple syrup and sugar are made - a delicious and fun way to make science come alive! WVWA offers a very special winter event that is ideal for families, scout groups and anyone curious about the maple sugar process.  Guides take small groups through the woods to see the tapped trees and then watch it being boiled into sugar. End your walk at WVWA’s historic headquarters for hot chocolate and warm treats with maple syrup.
