Hike and Nature Program at Ivy Creek Natural Area

Description: Students will hike and take part in a nature program focusing on the changing of seasons. We'll have time after the 1 hour program to visit the historic 1930s barn built by Conly Greer, the first African American agricultural extension agent in Albemarle County. Scenically shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, this 219-acre preserve bordering the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir is a mix of upland woods, pine stands, open fields, streams, and two miles of shoreline. Its rolling hills and diverse habitats make the Ivy Creek Natural Area an ideal site to learn about the rich natural history characteristic of Central Virginia and has made Ivy Creek a favorite destination for visitors and community alike looking for a peaceful walk in the woods.
Notes: Attendees will likely be split into smaller groups by age (depending on our numbers). Bring a lunch if you would like to stay for a picnic in the field next to the barn after our program. All trash must be taken off the property when you leave.
