High Rocks-Potomac Valley Audubon

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society was organized in 1982. We are a chapter of the National Audubon Society and draw our members from Jefferson, Berkeley, and Morgan counties in West Virginia and Washington County, Maryland.

PVAS offers a wide variety of programs for children, adults, and families. Our goal is to get people of all ages outside to explore and learn about the natural world. To help accomplish this goal, PVAS manages four nature preserves featuring a variety of habitats in the Eastern Panhandle of WV to hike and explore.

We also work closely with a variety of partners to conserve natural areas for habitat protection and for people's enjoyment. Education is one of the primary ways PVAS works to fulfill its mission. From preschool to adults, PVAS offers opportunities to learn about the natural world through our educational programs.

These range from programs delivered to local schools to summer day camps to nature walks for adults and families. Our service area is rich in natural history and recreational opportunities, providing a wonderful outdoor learning lab wherever you go. Further help on this page can be found by clicking here.
