Join us for our first Big Sit at Meadowood Special Recreation Management Area, Saturday, October 7, from 8AM-4PM.
Vulture: The Private Life of an Unloved Bird
Just in time for Halloween! Vultures are often overlooked, underappreciated, and unloved, despite the vital role they play healthy ecosystems. Worldwide, vultures are more likely to be threatened or endangered than any other group of raptor, but in the United States turkey and black vultures may be increasing in number.
Join us for the 36th Annual Manassas-Bull Run Christmas Bird Count. This year the count will be on Sunday, December 17th.
Monarchs and their amazing migration to Mexico are in peril for many reasons. Learn about the monarch life cycle, migration, cycle, how you can attract them to your home garden or favorite public space, and how to raise them to send them on their fall journey. Resources for milkweed and garden design also included.
ASNV’s FREE Christmas Bird Count Workshop relates the history, purpose, and scope of CBCs generally, explains how we organize our CBC, and shows where the data goes and how it is used.
Are you interested in learning more about birds? Do you want to learn how to create bird-friendly habitat in your yard or community? Maybe you would like to organize a bird walk or nature hike for your neighborhood, youth group, school or retirement community? ASNV volunteers are available to speak on these and other topics.
