Site CRI03: The Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen/Walkerton

Description

Along the Cultural Arts Center's entrance driveway are manicured grass strips, red cedars and loblolly pines. The dense understory along the drive can produce sightings of several woodland bird species. A small, wet, vegetated depression on site is a magnet for sparrows in winter, and the adjacent patch of standing water may attract waterfowl on occasion. The remnant loblolly pine stand is a likely spot to listen for pine warblers in spring.
