  • Edible Treats for Birds

    This program is full.
    7:00 p.m.
    During the winter, birds face a challenge: finding enough food to survive the cold, snowy weather at a time when food is more scarce. You can help by putting out homemade, birdseed treats, which also decorate your backyard trees! Since you'll be taking your treats home, be sure to bring a container with you. Hot chocolate and cookies will be served. We will also discuss bird related Citizen Science projects that you can participate in over the winter. 

  • Nature Journal Club

    This program is cancelled
    Want to deepen your love of the natural world, notice nature’s tiniest details and spend time surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors? Then start keeping a nature journal! Join us for a monthly journal club and make this activity a habit. Weather permitting, this session will be held completely outdoors at our Crossways Preserve.

    October is one of the best times of the year to see and hear owls - and what could be a better way to take advantage of Autumn’s beautiful, quiet nights than to go in search of those nocturnal wonders.  Join us for an evening of pie and cider at WVWA headquarters, followed by an owl-prowl through the twilight woods!
