Join us for the 36th Annual Manassas-Bull Run Christmas Bird Count. This year the count will be on Sunday, December 17th. The count circle is around Centreville and includes Manassas Battlefield, parts of Bull Run Regional Park, undeveloped areas south of Dulles Airport, and many stream valley parks and undeveloped locations from Clifton to west Fairfax City.
Bob Mumford will present Beautiful Bhutan with some of his excellent photos (mostly birds, but a few others as well) from his recent trip to this small Himalayan country with a “National Happiness Index.”
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.
