Join local bird expert, Deb Hale, at Harper's Ferry National Park for a unique late afternoon adventure of watching vultures as they return to their roosts for the evening. The vultures come to roost each evening in trees along the ridge and also near Nash Farm. Don't miss this fascinating opportunity to watch the vultures swoop in as twilight is approaching.

The trip will begin at 4:30 PM and last about an hour. 

The event is free and open to anyone with an interest. Children will be welcome. Binoculars will be available for anyone who needs them.

Registration is strongly encouraged.

Participants will meet at the Bolivar Heights parking area. 

Directions: from the Route 340 traffic light at the entrance to the National Park, turn north onto Washington Street and follow it for about 1/4 mile, then turn north again (left) onto Whitman Avenue; the parking area is at the top of the hill.

Participants should wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for prevailing weather conditions.

For more information, please contact Deb Hale at or 304-535-1528.

This presentation will be held at 7:00 PM at the Bolivar Community Center at 60 Panama Street, Harpers Ferry.
