Conservation Activities

Christmas Bird Count

The Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count for the Quantico Circle will be conducted on 27 December 2020. Members can help count the birds on the Chapter property beginning at 0700. Bring binoculars, camera, field guides and warm clothes. A list of birds that you may be able to spot on the property will be provided or you may download it ahead of time. The Conservation Committee will provide warm beverages and snacks.

Winter Salt Watch

Road salt (sodium chloride) is everywhere during winter months. It keeps us safe on roads and sidewalks, but it can also pose a threat to fish and wildlife as well as human health. You can take action to find out whether road salt pollution is a problem in your local stream.

Save Our Streams

: Virginia Save Our Streams (SOS) is a program of the Izaak Walton League of America. Founded in 1922, the Izaak Walton League is one of the nation’s oldest and most respected conservation organizations. Virginians have the right to know whether our streams are safe for swimming, fishing, playing, and drinking. Virginia Save Our Streams monitors water quality of Virginia’s streams and educates the public about the importance of clean water. Our Chapter's SOS Chairperson is Eric Brown. The chapter seeks volunteers to help start a stream-monitoring program for five areas around the property. If interested contact Eric Brown or Guy Cox on how you can help.
