VSO Summer Field Trip to Northern Neck June 7-9, 2019

Join us June 7-9 in Warsaw for VSO’s summer field trip to the Northern Neck of Virginia! We’re working with Dr. Ashley Peele, State Coordinator for the second Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas (VABBA2), to schedule our next summer field trips in under-birded areas of Virginia. We welcome your eyes and ears as we search for signs of breeding birds in Warsaw, Tappahannock and surrounding areas. 


To help us plan for the weekend, please register in advance. Provide the names of participants in your party with a telephone number and email address so we can contact you if needed. Register with Meredith Bell, trip coordinator, at merandlee@gmail.comor 804-824-4958.

A complimentary hot breakfast buffet is included with your stay, beginning at 6:30AM on Saturday and Sunday. Bring snacks, beverages and lunch for Saturday because we may be out all day. Dinners are on your own. 


Field trips will be held:

Friday, June 7 – afternoon only

Saturday, June 8 – all day

We are still finalizing the locations we’ll visit, and a detailed itinerary will be sent to all registrants prior to the trip. Our goal is to combine favorite birding spots in the area with areas that need coverage.
