Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday October 8 at 7:00 for our regular monthly program at a new venue!

We are excited to announce that PVAS's Monthly Programs will now be held at Hospice of the Panhandle. The new Hospice facility is centrally located for the convenience of our members. We are very pleased to have the use of such an amazing space. 

Chris Tawney, Biological Science Technician at Antietam National Battlefield, will be presenting on the Grassland Project at Antietam. 

The Otto Farm Grassland Restoration Project is a 50+ acre farm on the south end of Antietam National Battlefield that they are managing as a warm season grass wildlife habitat. Mr. Tawney will be discussing the goals for the project from both a natural and cultural landscape perspective. In addition, he will touch on the Battlefield's prescribed fire program, their riparian buffer areas and how the use of warm season grasses in the buffer areas can positively affect the the amount of nutrient and sediment input into the Antietam Creek Watershed. 

Wil Hershberger has written an article that highlights information about PVAS's Grassland Initiative Project as well as examples and local success stories. Please see the article here: Grassland Restoration Project

Admission to PVAS's Monthly Program is free, no registration is needed and everyone is welcome to attend.
