Don’t Miss our Fifth Annual Holiday Event: Swanfall 2019

Please join us at 2:00pm on December 8, 2019 for the Friends of Mason Neck State Park’s special holiday program at the Jammes House.   

The Jammes House is a former hunting lodge in Mason Neck State Park, located on the banks of Occoquan Bay.  It will be decorated for the holidays and has stunning views of the Bay and the Potomac River. This unique home is not normally open to visitors, so take advantage of this rare opportunity to see the house and experience its magnificent setting and enjoy a light buffet with lots of tasty treats.    


Then sit back and listen to a fascinating program presented by naturalist and author Bob Blakney. Bob is author of the field guide “Northern Virginia Dragonflies and Damselflies.” He has participated in regular surveys of the Mason Neck area for the Audubon Society of Northern Virginia for more than 12 years. Bob will present photographs he has taken of dragonflies and damselflies in the region and talk about these fascinating creatures that inhabit our local ponds and streams.

  •          Dragonflies can fly straight up and down, backwards and       hover like a helicopter.
  •         Dragonflies are among the most efficient predators on Earth.
