Important Notices

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

The Tidewater Loop is comprised of sites bordering the south bank of the James River and two inland sites that provide a completely different assortment of plants and animals. The riverside sites offer year-round birding, but are especially exciting during spring and fall migrations, and during winter when rafts of waterfowl may be viewed from elevated bluffs in coastal impoundments.
