  • Woodcock Dance

    6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

    Program is full - email kristy@wvwa.org if you would like to be added to the wait-list. 
    Each year the nuptial flight or dance of the male American Woodcock heralds spring.  Witness this wonderful and short-lived spring phenomenon.  This walk will meet at the WVWA Headquarters for materials and a brief woodcock talk, then regroup at a nearby woodcock hotspot.

  • Vernal Pool Exploration

    10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
    WVWA’s Vernal Pool Exploration provides a fun, outdoor learning experience for kids and adults alike. Discover the differences between a spring peeper, a chorus frog, and a wood frog. Find out how far an endangered spotted salamander will walk to find a mating pool. And, learn how much everything we have come to appreciate about the springtime depends on a few unassuming puddles of water on the forest floor.
