In addition to our work preserving high quality natural areas, Captina Conservancy also partners with other agencies on restoring streams and wetlands impacted by human activity. Last week we scouted out a restoration site in Cat Run watershed (a tributary to Captina Creek), which will include fencing out livestock and restoring a natural stream channel.
This duo is about as big as they're going to get before losing their spots! Fawns are born with spots to help them hide when curled up in sun-dappled grass during the day. As they get bigger and more active, foraging for their own food, the spots become a liability and their fur turns uniformly brown.

Have you ever wondered about the names and features of the many wildflowers that brighten our area each spring? Now's your chance to learn more at the return of our Tenth Annual Wildflower Walk. Please join us for this free event, where we will provide information on some of the many beautiful wildflowers that carpet Barnesville Park each year. The walk is self-guided, although some volunteer guides will be available throughout the day. The hike is mainly flat along a gravel path, with optional, more strenuous paths off the main trail.
In order to manage crowd flow and allow for social distancing, please RSVP to: email@example.com with the expected number in your party and planned time of arrival. This year's walk will feature the chance to purchase one of our beautiful spring wildflower prints, depicted above. Photography and poster design by Daniel Caron and Abbey Heyward.
Join us for a virtual group walk every Wednesday! Post a picture or comment of yourself and/or anyone in your household (PLEASE practice safe social distancing and don't walk with anyone not already living with you) getting some fresh air. Whether it's the woods, a park, around the block or down the road, we'd love to see you.
Physical movement and a change of scene (both of which don't have to cost anything) can be a great boon in times of stress. Let's give it a try as we practice being apart, yet very much still together.
