Eidolon Nature Preserve Open House Set for April 25

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will hold an open house at the Eidolon Nature Preserve in Morgan County on Saturday, April 24.

It will feature guided walks of the preserve, led by naturalist Joe Gentile, at 10am and 2pm.
Throughout the day, docents will be on hand to help direct visitors around the preserve, and light refreshments will be available.
There is no fee and anyone is welcome to attend.
The event is part of this year's Morgan County Redbud Weekend, which will feature a wide variety of activities and events April 23-25.

Festival brochures that include a map and listing of all activities, with directions, are available at the following locations in Berkeley Springs: the Nature Niche store at 50 North Washington Street, the Berkeley Springs Visitors Center at 127 Fairfax Street, and the Panorama at the Peak Restaurant, Route 9 west.
The Eidolon preserve is owned by The Nature Conservancy and co-managed by PVAS. It is 354 acres in size and includes about 4 miles of walking trails. It was first opened to the public in the spring of 2007.
Visitors should wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots and dress appropriately for the weather.
There are some relatively easy walks within the preserve but many trails include fairly steep and rugged sections and are fairly strenuous.
The preserve is located on Sideling Hill in Morgan County, due west of Berkeley Springs. For directions and more information about the preserve see the Redbud Weekend brochure or go to the PVAS website at
