First Fridays Under the Sun

Solar Observing sessions are moving to a monthly schedule, every first Friday of every month in 2023.  The Charlottesville Astronomical Society will present and bring their special Solar telescope(s), which will allow us to safely see sunspots, solar flares and prominences, and other features on the living cauldron that is our sun.  We'll start at noon in the education building for a short presentation, then go outside at 12:20.  

Cloudy weather cancels.

Free and open to all.

Saturday, February 4 | 7:30am

First Saturday Bird Walk

Birders of all levels are welcome. The club has binoculars which participants may borrow. This event is open to the public and no pre-registration is required.

About Ivy Creek

Scenically shadowed by the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Ivy Creek Natural Area (ICNA) is a 219-acre preserve bordering the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir in Charlottesville, Virginia.

With seven miles of trails traversing a mix of upland woods, pine stands, fields, streams, and shoreline, ICNA is an ideal site to learn about the rich natural history characteristic of Central Virginia.
