Field DayApril 12, 2014
The refuge's annual event provides the general public a chance to come and enjoy a fun-filled day for the whole family. Pontoon boat trips will transport people to and from the island throughout the day. Nature walks, paddle trips, archery, and live animal demonstrations will be offered at various times. Specifically for children, the James River Ecology School staff will be on hand to lead activities and games. No pre-registration required.
Presquile NWR will host its Field Day event Saturday April 12. The event begins at 9:00AM and continues through 4: 00 PM. Boat transportation shuttles from the mainland will begin at 9:00 AM and end at 3:00 PM. The shuttles will travel between 4700 Bermuda Hundred Road and the island in approximately 30 minute intervals. The final shuttle will depart the island at 4:00 PM. All activities are free and no reservations are required for this special day (permits are required at all other times to visit the refuge).
We are greatly appreciative of our Partners including Virginia Commonweath University, Philip Morris, the James River Association, Richmond Audubon Society, the Pocahontas Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalist, and more for their assistance with this event!
