    Where: Eidolon Nature Preserve, Morgan County

    When: Sunday, July 12, 2015

    Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

    Cost: Free

    Walk Leader: Joe Metzger

    Join Joe Metzger as he scours the property of Eidolon Nature Preserve for various common and also extremely rare plants. 

    This is the second of three planned walks that will offer unique opportunities to participate in a systematic effort to compare the plants growing now on the Eidolon property to those recorded there as far back as 70 years ago.

    The walks are scheduled for May 10, July 12 and September 13. You may choose to participate in just one or all three. 

    The Eidolon property was purchased in 1945 by Louis and Marguerite Zapoleon. Over several decades, Mrs. Marguerite Zapoleon documented plants and animals which she had seen on the property. According to Mrs. Zapoleon's wishes, it became a nature preserve after she passed away in 2003. 

    For more than 5 decades, Mrs. Zapoleon kept careful records of the plants and animals she had seen on the property. These records survived (they can be found on the PVAS website) and the planned series of walks will attempt to relocate the 600 species of plants that Mrs. Zapoleon recorded. Those plants include 30 very rare species (of these, Mr. Metzger has only seen 4).

    The walks are co-sponsored by the Maryland Native Plant Society.

    Anyone with an interest is welcome to attend, however registration is strongly encouraged. Registration for each of the walks is separate and all walks can be found chronologically on the website calendar under Events Calendar. 

    Please dress for the weather, bring bug spray, sun screen, drinking water and a sack lunch. You may also like to have along a camera and binoculars. 

    Meet in the parking lot at Eidolon Nature Preserve at 10:00 a.m. The preserve is located on Sideling Hill Mountain Northwest of Great Cacapon. Directions to Eidolon Nature Preserve can be found on the Eidolon page.

    Please contact Krista Hawley at adultprogram@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026 with any questions you may have.

    Trip Leader: Dave Kaplan 
    Co-Leader: Sandy Sagalkin

    JOIN THE FIRST ANNUAL BUTTERFLY COUNT AT ANTIETAM BATTLEFIELD ON JULY 25

    The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor the first Annual Butterfly Count along the Final Attack Trail on the Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD on Saturday, July 25.

    The count is being cosponsored by the Washington County Bird Club.

    Dave Kaplan, local butterfly expert, will lead the butterfly count.  It will be free and open to anyone with an interest, regardless of his or her butterfly expertise. This will be a perfect family activity, and children, accompanied by adults, are encouraged to attend.

    Registration is required and limited to 20. 

    As butterflies do not fly in the rain and heavy overcast can keep them down, participants should check the PVAS website for postponements if bad weather is forecast.  If the count is postponed, a notice will be placed on the website by 9 p.m. on the day before the count.

    If the count is postponed, we will try to reschedule on August 1.  August 8 is a further backup date.

    The Final Attack Trail is in the area where the Union Army made its final advance to drive the Confederate Army from Maryland on September 17, 1862, only to be turned back by A.P. Hill’s final Confederate counterattack.

    It is also the site of an extensive effort by the Antietam National Battlefield to restore and preserve native grasslands on the Otto Farm fields in the Battlefield's southwest corner.  The park has recently been the recipient of a pollinator grant from the National Park Service, which will be used to add native wildflowers to the existing stands of native warm season grasses at the farm.

    The butterfly count, along with data on birdlife and other wildlife, will be used in documenting the value of the project at the Otto Farm.  PVAS has been active in supporting the project and assisting park personnel in monitoring bird life in the area for the last two years.

    Participants should plan to meet count leader Dave Kaplan at the Burnside Bridge at 10 a.m. Sandy Sagalkin will be the co-leader and will help identify bird life during the count. 

    To get to the Burnside Bridge parking area from Sharpsburg, head northeast towards Boonsboro. Take the first right turn after leaving Sharpsburg onto Rodman Avenue, which takes you into the battlefield. Turn left at the “T” and follow the road up the hill to the parking area.

    The count will last about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, and cover mostly level terrain. The trail is about 2 miles in length.

    Participants should wear sturdy footwear, dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions, and bring along water, a broad-brimmed hat, and insect repellent. PVAS has a limited supply of loaner binoculars for those who do not have their own.

    For more information, contact Mr. Dave Kaplan at or janandavek@verizon.net or Mr. Sagalkin at monsansagalkin@myactv.net or 240-291-6465.

    Workshop Instructor: Laura Kitchin Greenleaf

    PVAS Host: Debbie Maiorano

    PVMN Recert Hours

    The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is excited to welcome Laura Kitchin Greenleaf as she shares her knowledge and information on the fascinating topic of light pollution.

    Mrs. Greenleaf will lead a Natural History Workshop, "Wasted Light, Stolen Night; An Introduction to Light Pollution" at the Hospice of the Panhandle on Saturday, July 25. 

    Laura Greenleaf co-leads the Virginia chapter of the International Dark Sky Association. As a certified Master Naturalist in Virginia (Riverine chapter), she has been educating audiences about the vanishing night and supporting community members and advocates working to turn the tide of light pollution. She delivers presentations for conferences, nonprofit organizations, community groups and government agencies.

    During this workshop, Laura Greenleaf will explain why light pollution has increased exponentially in the past fifty years and how a more informed, thoughtful approach to outdoor lighting along with improved design and technology can reverse the obliteration of starry skies and natural nightscapes.  We'll learn the facts about public safety and lighting and  why so much of our lighting does more harm than good, including to our vision and our health. We'll explore the ecological consequences of light  pollution as artificial light at night ripples through the food web, disrupting habitat, life cycles and physiology of all species. We'll also hear the good news about night sky conservation and positive trends from around the world and find out what we can do to make a difference at home.

    Laura will also be giving away a free signed copy of Paul Bogard's acclaimed The Light of Night: Searching for natural darkness in an age of artificial light.

    This Natural History Workshop is open to the public, however pre-registration is required. 

    Directions to the main office of the Hospice of the Panhandle can be found here: http://www.hospiceotp.org/contact-us 

    Hospice of the Panhandle is off of the old Hwy 9 (Route 115) between Kearneysville and Martinsburg, just down from the VA Hospital. The entrance to the Hospice Building is directly across from the Food Lionon Coast Guard Drive in Kearneysville. 

    Please contact Krista Hawley at adultprograms@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026 with any questions you may have. 

    **Registration fees are non-refundable. PVAS reserves the right to cancel the workshop due to unforeseen issues and in this case, a full refund will be given.

    Anyone with an interest is welcome to join the trip, including families with children. However, space will be limited to only 30 people so pre-registration is required. Directions will be provided when you receive your registration confirmation email.

    Because parking at the preserve is limited, participants are encouraged to meet at the Food Lion parking lot on Route 51 off I-81 in Inwood at 8:30 a.m. and carpool from there to the preserve.


    Hike Description: A short trail takes you across 3 private properties to the Preserve's trail. Here you are halfway up Ice Mt. We will take a mile roundtrip hike down to the cold vents, and then hike a mile roundtrip to the scenic overlook.  You can stop mid-point if desired.  The trail is moderately difficult.  The group will lead the pace.  Approximate time for the full hike is 3 hours.


    We will meet our docents at the Old Inn, North River Mills.  Detailed directions will be emailed to all attendees.

    Address for  GPS: 8152 Cold Stream Rd, Capon Bridge, WV 26711 (This is the N. River Mills Methodist Church which is a couple hundred yards east of our destination).

    If there are heavy rains the hike will be rescheduled at a later date.

    No dogs please, rare plants border the narrow trail.

    The Ice Mountain Preserve is a 149-acre property that contains an unusual geologic site: a high rocky slope that traps winter ice and retains it year round, like a kind of natural refrigerator.

    The ice itself is mostly hidden from view deep within the rocks but cold air flows continually from a series of vents at the bottom of the slope.

    The mountain also has high sandstone cliffs that offer impressive views and rock chimneys that are home to large ravens. One may also see eagles there.

    Because of its unique characteristics, the preserve was designated a U.S. National Natural Landmark in the spring of 2011.The property is owned by the Nature Conservancy.

    The walking group will assemble at 8:00 p.m. in the large C&O Canal parking area on Canal Road, three-tenths of a mile south of the Shepherdstown/Sharpsburg bridge.

    From there, Hershberger will lead an exploration of fields and roadsides near the Canal. Insects likely to be encountered include tree crickets, several species of meadow katydids, one or two species of round-winged katydids, northern true katydids, oblong-wing katydids, and perhaps some bush katydids.

    Those who wish to participate should bring a flashlight and be prepared to walk through high grass and weeds. Tucking pants legs into socks and spraying them with a DEET-based insect repellent is recommended.

    The walk will not take place if it is raining.

    Hershberger, who lives in Hedgesville, is one of the area's leading naturalists.

    He has been photographing and recording the natural world for more than a decade and his work has been published in magazines, calendars, and books.

    His recordings of birds, frogs and insects are archived at the Macaulay Library of Natural Sounds at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.

    His website can be found at natureimagesandsounds.com

    During class, participants will be on the lookout for species not yet recorded for that county or even more exciting, the state! Those will be collected and added to the herbarium at Davis & Elkins College.

    Walt Sturgeon is a field mycologist with over 30 years of experience studying and identifying mushrooms. His photos of mushroom and fungi, some award-winning, can be seen in numerous mushroom field guide publications, two of which he co-authored: Waxcap Mushrooms of Eastern North America, 2012; Mushrooms and Macrofungi of Ohio and the Midwestern States, 2013; and his Mushrooms and Other Fungi of the West Virginia High Country. 

    Walt has received the North American Mycological Association (NAMA) Award for Contributions to Amateur Mycology, and Northeast (North America) Mycological Federation (NEMF) Eximia Award, both for contributions to the advancement of amateur mycology. Additionally, he is the past president of the Ohio Mushroom Society and has associations with many other mycological organizations.

    What: Plant Walk 

    Where: Eidolon Nature Preserve, Morgan County

    When: Sunday, September 13, 2015

    Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

    Cost: Free

    Walk Leader: Joe Metzger

    Join Joe Metzger as he scours the property of Eidolon Nature Preserve for various common and also extremely rare plants. 

    This is the third of three planned walks that will offer unique opportunities to participate in a systematic effort to compare the plants growing now on the Eidolon property to those recorded there as far back as 70 years ago.

    The walks are scheduled for May 10, July 12 and September 13. You may choose to participate in just one or all three. 

    The Eidolon property was purchased in 1945 by Louis and Marguerite Zapoleon. Over several decades, Mrs. Marguerite Zapoleon documented plants and animals which she had seen on the property. According to Mrs. Zapoleon's wishes, it became a nature preserve after she passed away in 2003. 

    For more than 5 decades, Mrs. Zapoleon kept careful records of the plants and animals she had seen on the property. These records survived (they can be found on the PVAS website) and the planned series of walks will attempt to relocate the 600 species of plants that Mrs. Zapoleon recorded. Those plants include 30 very rare species (of these, Mr. Metzger has only seen 4).

    The walks are co-sponsored by the Maryland Native Plant Society.

    Anyone with an interest is welcome to attend, however registration is strongly encouraged. Registration for each of the walks is separate and all walks can be found chronologically on the website calendar under Events Calendar. 

    Please dress for the weather, bring bug spray, sun screen, drinking water and a sack lunch. You may also like to have along a camera and binoculars. 

    Meet in the parking lot at Eidolon Nature Preserve at 10:00 a.m. The preserve is located on Sideling Hill Mountain Northwest of Great Cacapon. Directions to Eidolon Nature Preserve can be found on potomacaudubon.org under the blue Welcome tab/Nature Preserves.

    PVAS Trip Leader: Jim Farley

    The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a birding trip to the National Conservation Training Center outside Shepherdstown on Saturday, September 26.

    The trip is free and anyone with an interest is welcome to come along, but space will be limited and registration by Wednesday, September 23 is required. Children will be welcome.

    For more information or any questions you may have, please contact Krista Hawley at adultprograms@potomacaudubon.org or 703-303-1026.

    The bird walk will highlight fall migrants and raptors.

    The Center's 538-acre campus is not normally open to the public, so this is a wonderful opportunity to visit the campus and enjoy their trails while birding. 

    The campus contains a mix of fields and forest, providing good habitat for a rich variety of bird species such as sparrows, juncos, raptors, bluebirds, woodpeckers and waterfowl. One of the highlights of the bird walk is observing NCTC's active eagle nest. 

    The trip will last about three and a half hours and involve walking about two miles over moderate terrain.

    Everyone should plan to wear comfortable walking or hiking boots that can protect against possible muddy trails and dress appropriately for the prevailing weather conditions. It is also a good idea to bring along sunscreen and drinking water.

    PVAS will provide binoculars for those who do not have their own.

    The trip may be cancelled if there is bad weather.
