New Bus Tour of Oakton Historic Landmarks, Saturday morning, April 15th. GOCA, together with the Vale Club, has invited Jim Lewis to guide us on another bus tour of the historic landmarks in the area . This program will be a follow-on to last year’s tour, not a repeat, and will cover different parts of the area–see here for more detail. Cost is $40 per person. Space on the bus tour is limited to 22 people. We are currently filled, but if you would like to get on our waiting list, please email us.
Breakfast with the Birds. Join us on Sunday, May 7th at 8:30 am for a birding walk in the park during the height of the Spring migration and help increase the number of bird species found for the park. Fairfax Master Naturalist and experienced birder John Wilson will guide us as we look and listen for different birds. Plus, we'll visit the bluebird houses that will have just been installed around the meadow. After our walk, we'll enjoy coffee and donuts. All ages are welcome to this free event. Meet in front of the schoolhouse and just bring your eyes and ears - and binoculars if you have them. Please register for this event here.
