|COVID-19 & the VBWT: Be Safe While OutdoorsDWR encourages you to be safe while outdoors. Before heading out, first check with individual sites on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail for any COVID-19 policies or closures. This information is typically posted on a site's own website. Remember to maintain CDC social distancing guidelines while enjoying the outdoors.|
Virginia’s Coastal Plain contains 18 trail loops to explore its scenic seashores, untouched barrier islands, cypress swamps, great stands of pine forest, and bayside salt marshes. Look for bald eagles and osprey, wintering geese and ducks, rails, shorebirds, and migrating songbirds. Additional wildlife includes marine mammals, turtles, lizards, snakes, and frogs, plus abundant butterflies and dragonflies.
