Registration is closed

Swanfall, the Friends of Mason Neck State Park's annual holiday celebration that traditionally is held at the Jammes House in the Park, will be held online at 2 PM on Sunday December 6. Erin Thady, a Wildlife Biologist with Fairfax County, will entertain and inform us with a presentation about foxes.  

Northern Virginia is home to a diverse assemblage of mammals that cohabit our suburban communities. Foxes are among the mammals that have adapted to an increasingly urbanized landscape and have learned how to successfully coexist alongside humans.

Although foxes can be elusive, they are often commonly observed throughout our communities.

Erin will discuss the natural histories of red foxes and gray foxes and their unique adaptations for survival in a dynamic landscape. She will also discuss fox characteristics and identification tips, diet and habitat preferences, population dynamics, and ways that humans successfully coexist with foxes.

Join us as Erin presents a closer look at the secretive lives of foxes. Registration is required, and is only $5 for each family. We'll send login information to all registrants a few days before the program.
