Bring your family and friends to Merrimac Farm on Sunday, April 15, beginning at 10:00 am, to welcome spring and view the spectacular display of Virginia Bluebells that carpet the floodplain along Cedar Run for nearly a mile. In the words of one visitor, it's like walking through Oz.
We'll have naturalist-led tours to the Bluebells and Cedar Run, where you can stay as long as you'd like. Along the way we'll travel through a variety of habitats, talking about the birds, butterflies, frogs and other wildlife that lives at Merrimac Farm and in Northern Virginia.
A nature art show featuring local artists and photographers will be ongoing inside the Stone House Visitor Center. NatureBridge and other groups will have fun nature activities for children of all ages.
Sponsored by Prince William Conservation Alliance and VA Dept. of Game & Inland Fisheries with support from Marine Corps Base Quantico.
