New WVWA Programs
Beginning this spring and summer, WVWA will be offering even more family nature hikes on our preserves. All hikes will be opportunities for young birdwatchers to develop their skills, but will also provide budding naturalists and conservationists alike the chance to learn, first-hand, about the plant and wildlife interactions that exist in a variety of habitats. These family-oriented hikes will be a chance to explore, enjoy, and learn about all that nature has to offer. All Family Hikes are free of charge and no registration is required. The first hike is Saturday, May 2 at Four Mills Reserve. View our website calendar for complete listing of Family Hikes.
Pop-Up Nature Tours
Pop-Up Nature Tours will also take place throughout the year; if WVWA staff members observe a special natural occurrence, we will lead guided hikes to share it with you! To be added to the Pop-Up mailing list, click here , and select Pop-Up Natures Tours under "Email Lists".
WVWA is pleased to announce our availability in offering guided hikes and nature activities for groups on weekends or weekdays. We are happy to provide a setting that can help enhance environment and ecology curriculum. Contact Margaret Rohde for more information or scheduling: firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-646-8866.
Four Mills Barn Opening on Weekends
Our trails are open to the public everyday from dawn-dusk but starting in mid-May the Four Mills Barn (WVWA Headquarters) will be open most Saturdays & Sundays from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Our new WVWA Staff Naturalist, Margaret Rohde, will be available for questions and to lead impromptu walks on the Four Mills Reserve. The schedule will vary if Margaret is out leading a Family Hike but look for our new street sign indicating the Barn is open.
Birds and Brews
On two Fridays each month, bird and beer enthusiasts will meet up at either a WVWA preserve or local park to do some casual late-afternoon birding, followed by a trip to a nearby brewery or pub. Click here for more information about Birds and Brews, including dates and locations.
