May Native Plant Walk

Join Phil Stokes for a late spring tree walk when lush green tree foliage transforms the landscape.  Trees will  provide us with welcome shade and tell tale leaf shapes that reveal their identity.  With Ivy Creek's notable diversity of trees you'll see about 30 different tree species in habitats where they naturally occur without wandering far. Co-sponsored with the Jefferson Chapter, Virginia Native Plant Society.

 Meet by the kiosk near the parking lot. Free and open to the public.

Farm and Barn History Hours

Join us for the reopening of the barn at Ivy Creek Natural Area! This was formerly the showpiece of the working farm known as River View Farm. It is also one of the reasons that River View Farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy the displays including natural history exhibits and farm equipment. Additionally, there are historical displays about the Carr/Greer family who built this barn and lived at River View Farm for over one hundred years.

Be in the Know!
