Intersection of Rippon Blvd and Farm Creek Drive
Prince William County, Virginia 22191

Join Prince William Conservation Alliance naturalists on Saturday, July 8 for a guided tour of the Featherstone National Wildlife Refuge.

The Featherstone Refuge is generally closed to public uses and many people do not even know it exists. Now is you chance to visit this fabulous natural area along Prince William’s Potomac River shoreline!

The Featherstone Refuge is located at the point where Neabsco Creek flows into the Potomac River. With 325 acres of upland forests and freshwater tidal marshes, the Refuge attracts waterfowl, wading birds and migratory songbirds. Bald eagles and other raptors perch along the Potomac River shoreline. This is a great spot to watch wildlife!

We will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the main Rippon VRE parking lot, located at the intersection of Rippon Blvd. and Farm Creek Drive, east of Route 1.

Preferred attire includes sturdy hiking shoes, long socks, long pants and light colors. Bring water to drink, binoculars and cameras. We have some binoculars to share.
