Take advantage to the great weather predicted for this weekend and join in on the activities at the Occoquan National Wildlife Refuge in Prince William County scheduled for Saturday October 13th. The Fall Wildlife Festival is the perfect time to wander through the 400 acre nature preserve which is home to not only loads of deer but also a breeding sanctuary for Osprey, Eagles and Herons. Wander along the river and with your camera and get some great shots of the native inhabitants.
Raptor demonstrations (hawks and owls), hayrides, reptiles, and a photography workshops are just some of the activities scheduled for the 9 am - 3 pm festival. This is a great time to learn more about the wildlife that inhabit our area and for the kids of course there will be face painting, owl hooting contests and more fun.
Perhaps the woodpecker who likes to peck on our balcony railing every morning will make an appearance as well! I learned from one of the US Wildlife rangers why our little friend likes to make such a racket. He is looking for a mate and the sound of his pecking on the metal railing is much louder than he can make from pecking on his tree. See what you might learn if you come to the festival!
Admission to the park and all of the activities are FREE!
So come on down to Belmont Bay and the Occoquan Wildlife Refugee for a great day of learning and fun
