Bert Harris (Executive Director of The Clifton Institute) will give a presentation about grassland restoration. He will discuss the ecology of grasslands in Virginia and how to establish and maintain grasslands. This involves both controlling exotic plants and promoting native ones. Bert’s talk will explain why The Clifton Institute are conducting a major grassland restoration experiment and how they're planning to do it.

Join us at 6:30 for drinks and appetizers. The talk will begin at 7:00 and last for about 45 minutes, with 15 minutes at the end of questions. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP by registering online or emailing Bert at bharris@cliftoninstitute.org.

Location: The Clifton Institute, 6712 Blantyre Road, Warrenton, Virginia, United States
Category: Nature Walk

Novice and experienced birders will enjoy this guided 1-2 mile hike to look for the many species of birds that can be found at The Clifton Institute's field station. We will explore successional fields, meadows, lake edges, and forest. Note that this walk is on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday: this is so that any birds that we find can be counted toward our Christmas Bird Count the following Sunday.

Date and time subject to change based on weather.

This event is free and open to the public. To RSVP, please register online or email Bert Harris (bharris@cliftoninstitute.org).

Category: Nature Walk

Join our partners at The Clifton Institute for their annual Christmas Bird Count! We’ll spend the day surveying the birds in their 15-mile-diameter count circle. This is a great way to meet other birders in the area and to see what birds have migrated here for the winter.

This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Bert at bharris@cliftoninstitute.org if you are interested in participating. He will assign you to a team and each team will decide when and where to meet for the day. We’ll wrap up the count with a compilation potluck dinner at 5:30 at their headquarters.
