It was a great weekend at the Winter Wildlife Wildlife Festival held February 6–8 in Virginia Beach!
The festival tallied over 340 registered trip participants and drew over 600 visitors to Saturday’s exhibit hall. Two birding trips and an owl prowl were led by VDGIF staff, including a trip to Princess Anne WMA where 46 bird species were spotted.
In addition to the field trips, VDGIF biologists delivered presentations on black bears and fisheries at Back Bay to enthusiastic audiences. The VDGIF display in the exhibit hall engaged visitors of all ages in Virginia’s diverse wildlife, wildlife watching opportunities, and our Virginia is for Frogs campaign.
Thank you to Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation and all of our partners involved in putting on this terrific educational event! We hope that everyone who attended had as wonderful a time as we did.
