The Friends of Mason Neck State Park’s

Swanfall 2017 Was Completely Sold Out!


More than 60 guests attended Swanfall 2017 on December 3, 2017.  The Jammes House, a former hunting lodge on the banks of Occoquan Bay in Mason Neck State Park, was decorated for the holidays, and guests enjoyed a delicious buffet in this unique home.  


Paul Baicich, the co-author of the recently-published book “The Crossley ID Guide: Waterfowl" and President of the Friends of the Migratory Bird/Duck Stamp, spoke about the effect of changing demographics on waterfowl populations, efforts to acquire and preserve waterfowl habitat, and the habits and habitat of cavity-nesting waterfowl such as the Wood Duck and the Hooded Merganser.  








A silent auction featured the stunning photographs of Randy Streufert, whose stunning pictures of wildlife on Mason Neck have graced the cover of Virginia Wildlife magazine and the walls of the Park’s Visitor Center.  



 



And guests enjoyed a stunning sunset as they left the James House.
