Virginia Master Naturalists Help at the James River Fest

VIRGINIA MASTER NATURALISTS HELP AT THE JAMES RIVER FEST! On Saturday, April 30th, a team of willing Virginia Master Naturalists helped to celebrate the James River and its wildlife. Ten members of the Historic Rivers Chapter shared their knowledge of fossils, ecosystems, native plants, and-thanks to Catherine Short-turtles and tortoises of the James. It was a great day to share information about the conservation of such an ancient and complex ecological system as the James. If you are someone who likes being out in nature, getting dirty, and seeing tangible results of physical labor by helping to build and maintain park trails, restore wildlife habitat, and inspire a love for nature in others, check the HRC VMN website on June 1st for an application to join the next training class. Come enjoy nature with us!
