View From The Crow’s Nest

Ever wanted to check out the Crow’s Nest natural area preserve in Stafford? I’ve done it, and I highly recommend the trip. It’s a beautiful place. It’s not yet open to the public, so the only legal way to see it for yourself is to participate in a Department of Conservation and Recreation hike. The next one is April 30 at 9:30 a.m. Check out the details here if you’re interested.

Here’s the official word from DCR:

Space is limited for the Crow’s Nest Spring Field Day, and reservations are required. To reserve a spot and obtain directions to the preserve, call Faye McKinney at 804-786-7951. Casual clothes and comfortable shoes are recommended. Hikes will take place rain or shine.
