Come to Owl Moon on September 22!



The Friends of Mason Neck State Park will have their annual Owl Moon event on September 22.  This year, Secret Garden Birds and Bees will present a program on Winter Owls.  We'll learn about the short-eared owls, long-eared owls, saw-whet owls and snowy owls that make the Virginia, Maryland and DC area their homes for the winter.  Secret Garden will bring several species of live owls for you to see and photograph up close!  We'll have a short Annual Meeting before the presentation.  And we'll have light refreshments for you to enjoy as well.  Please note that Owl Moon will be held at the Gunston Hall Visitor Center, 10709 Gunston Road, instead of at the Park, so that we can accommodate everyone who wants to come.  


Owl Moon is open to members of the Friends of Mason Neck State Park and their families, and registration is required.  Members can register at Register for Owl Moon.  


If you aren't a member, you can become one for as little as $20 per year, and bring up to 4 other family members.  You can join the Friends at Join the Friends of Mason Neck State Park

Mason Neck State Park 

Mason Neck State Park is located on the Mason Neck peninsula in southeastern Fairfax County, Virginia. The Park's wetlands, forest, water, ponds, and fields are home to a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, osprey, geese, ducks, swans, and other birds living on or near the Potomac River, Kane's Creek, and Belmont Bay. 


The Park has hiking trails, three miles of paved multi-use trails, a large picnic area, a playground, a car-top canoe and kayak launch, and a visitor center. Canoe, kayak, and bicycle rentals are available.
