Purcellville Parks & Rec to Host March Nature Walk

The Purcellville Parks and Recreation Advisory Board will host a free nature walk at the Chapman DeMary Trail at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 31.

Gina Faber, a Loudoun County master gardener and recipient of the McGranaghan Stewardship Award for her efforts on the trail, will lead the walk and share information about spring ephemerals—perennial plants like Virginia Bluebells, Trout Lilies and Bloodroot that bud quickly before going dormant. Faber will point out trees and flowers beginning to bloom in the warmer weather and will encourage walkers to explore other insects, pollinators and wildlife.

To register for the walk, go to purcellvilleva.gov/881/monthly-nature-walks.
