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.

Description

Great opportunities to view wildlife, specifically waterfowl, shorebirds, and gulls, abound along the Gloucester Loop. River channels, cordgrass marshes, tidal flats, and lakes with flooded snags and weedy coves are some of the aquatic habitats that attract water birds to this part of the Virginia coast. The wildlife watcher equipped with a canoe or kayak will find several venues to experience close proximity wildlife viewing. Deciduous woodlands and flower gardens add to the habitat diversity of the loop’s sites.
