I would like to arrange a meet-up at 8:00am, on Saturday, May 10, at Huntley Meadows Marsh, a 1,500 acre fresh water wetland just outside of Alexandria, Virginia. We will have the opportunity to photograph a prime assortment of wildlife found here, including birds (there have been over 200 species identified in the park), frogs, turtles, snakes, dragonflies, and if we’re lucky, beavers and otters. There is a ½ mile long boardwalk that winds through-out the marsh, and an observation tower that oversees much of the area. This is a wonderful place to bring your binoculars and long lenses. You will find much to see and photograph here!
We will meet up in the Visitor Center parking lot (off Lockheed Blvd and Harrison Ln) at 8:00 am. Please be prompt as this is a prime wildlife feeding and activity time. From here we’ll walk together to the marsh entrance. There are also paths though out the woods surrounding the marsh if you would like to more fully explore this area.
The Visitor’s Center is open from 9:00am – 5:00 pm. There is a rest room available in the center, as well as exhibits about the marsh and a small gift shop.
