After two years, the long-awaited return of the Bluebell Festival is finally upon us.
The Bluebell Festival is a free, family-friendly event that allows everyone to learn about and enjoy nature.
Participants will be able to tour the Cedar Run shoreline, where they can see the Virginia Bluebells that spread across an almost mile-long space.
It will be held at Merrimac Farm Wildlife Management Area, 1014 Deepwood Lane in Nokesville, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 10, according to a release from the Prince William Conservation Alliance (PWCA). More information regarding the event activities can be found on the PWCA website.
This action-packed day will be filled with different activities, including birding along the Bluebell Trail and checking out bird and bee habitats.
There, you will connect with people trying to enhance Prince William County and the groups that lead the charge.
Make sure to wear proper attire for the event, because you will be out in nature. This includes long pants, solid shoes, and socks that can go over your pants.
The Bluebell Festival is made possible by its sponsors, PWCA and the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources, and supporter Marine Corps Base Quantico.
