Tour Crow’s Nest
With its towering trees, miles of waterfront, wildlife and history, Crow’s Nest is one of the region’s environmental jewels. And for the second time since the Stafford County peninsula was purchased by the county and the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation to create the Crow’s Nest Natural Area Preserve, it’ll be open for a day of public tours on Nov. 6. Reservations are required, and will be available by calling (804) 786-7951, beginning at 8 a.m. Oct. 18. Just 120 visitors will be allowed for the guided hikes and natural history interpretation, outings that begin at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
