Join PVAS on a Early Summer Bird Walk at the USGS Fish Health Lab property! 

There is a chance of rain forecasted during this walk, however the bird walk will still continue as schedule. The leaders will not go far from the cars in case of thunder/lighting but will hold the walk regardless of rain.

Joette recommends:

Dress for rain, with umbrella, and if it rains but does not thunderstorm, we can do a shorter walk.  Days like these are when storms bring down birds not normally present during good weather.

Bring your sense of adventure and enjoy tomorrow's walk!

Our expert birders are offering regular walks at the Fish Health Lab property and are excited with what it has to offer! The size is not excessively large, but the bird species are diverse and the quality of the wetland is excellent. The property has a mix of open ponds and woods; offering different species. The route is generally flat, with some gradual hills. 

Birds expected to be found are breeding summer residents, that should be enforcing their territory by singing their song.  If you want to learn more bird song, this would be a good walk to join, as Joette is a bird song enthusiast.  

This bird walk is open to the public and children are welcome to attend with an adult. 

Registration is strongly encouraged. 

Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy walking shoes and bring along drinking water, sun screen and insect repellent. 

Binoculars will be provided if needed. 

The address for the USGS Leetown Science Center is 407 Reservoir Road, just off Leetown Road in Leetown. To search for it on Internet mapping sites, enter 407 Reservoir Road, Kearneysville, WV.
