You're invited to the 4th Annual Open Farm Day at Brownsville Preserve. We hope you'll join the staff and volunteers of the Virginia Coast Reserve for one of our favorite spring activities!

This free, all ages event features guided nature tours, wagon rides, family activities, picnic lunch, and more!

Explore parts of the preserve that are usually closed to public access or do a little bird watching from our docks on Upshur and Phillips Creeks.

Take a naturalist led stroll through native habitats or enjoy the beauty of the 1,250 acre preserve from your seat on a guided wagon ride.

Enjoy outdoorsy crafts or try your luck with our piping plover survival game. There's something for everyone! Many of the activities at this event are ADA accessible.

Want to be a part of the fun? We are currently recruiting for volunteers to assist with family activities, parking, lunch, musicians, and photography.

For more information about the event, or to volunteer, please contact outreach and education coordinator, Margaret Van Clief at mvanclief@tnc.org or 757-414-9227.
