Bird Walk at Loudoun Water

The Children’s Science Center is excited to offer our first ever bird walk!  During this walk, you will learn about both native and non-native birds as you walk the paths of the restored wetlands behind Loudoun Water’s Ashburn facility, guided by local bird watching experts from the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia. The walk itself will last about 45 minutes and will follow paved and gravel paths in the restored wetlands area.

Feel free to bring a folding chair with you as there will be at least one designated stop where you will have a chance to start our Citizen Science Project, Celebrate Urban Birds, courtesy of our partner Cornell University’s Department of Ornithology.  The paths are accessible to everyone, however, wheelchairs and strollers may have a tougher passage on some of the gravel portions of the path.

Tour at Loudoun Water

The Aquiary is a destination for Loudoun area students, teachers, and parents to learn about wetlands, water conservation and water treatment in Loudoun County. Loudoun Water staff are always excited to share our passion for water in the community, which is why we offer guided tours of exhibits in our administrative offices in Ashburn. We cover the entire “story” of water; from source to treatment, to use, to reclamation, and back to a source.  We do focus on water reclamation as this is what we do at the Broad Run Water Reclamation Facility, in Ashburn. We do not bring groups into the actual reclamation treatment facility.
