The second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2) is a survey of all bird species breeding in the state. Data collected will help map the distribution and status of Virginia’s breeding bird community in order to better inform our natural resource and conservation decisions. The VABBA2 is a citizen science project, with volunteers conducting most of the key data collection.
Join The Nature Conservancy and Fairfax County Park Authority to clean up your watershed. This spring cleaning will remove tires, plastic bottles, cans and other debris from local waterways, preventing trash from reaching the nation’s largest estuary, the Chesapeake Bay.
We’ll check out the pond in the wetlands and the thickets in the polo fields for a variety of habitats. Sponsored by the Reston Association and The Bird Feeder of Reston.
Annual waterfowl survey has birders of all skill levels as volunteers. Larry Cartwright is the volunteer compiler. To volunteer, contact email@example.com or call 703-438-6008.
