Mysterious. Beautiful. Unique. Frightening. Those and many other adjectives have been used to describe the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge located in southeastern Virginia. In reality, the Swamp is a goldmine of wildlife and plants, many found nowhere else. Sitting in the heart of the refuge lies beautiful Lake Drummond, one of only two natural lakes in the state.
Teta Kain will present a program exploring the flora and fauna of this paradise of birds, butterflies and other natural wonders. Teta has visited the Swamp many times, assisting with bird surveys, participating in butterfly and bird counts, leading field trips, and enjoying private photographic safaris to all parts of the refuge. Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating study of this corner of Virginia.
The Lynchburg Bird Club meets on the second Wednesday every month from September through May (except December) at 7 p.m. at the Martin Science Hall on the campus of Randolph College. After a few brief announcements, bird sighting reports, and club business, we enjoy a program presented by a featured speaker. Anyone with an interest in birds (including non-members) is welcome at bird club meetings. Bird club members and guests may park in the Randolph College and Magnolia Foods parking lot across Norfolk Ave. from Martin Science Hall.
