Mason Neck National Wildlife Refuge - Lorton, VA
Activities: The Mason Neck refuge supports two trails for hiking, bird-watching, and wildlife observation. Interpretive kiosks at the head of the Woodmarsh Trail and Great Marsh Trail provide information on the recovery and management of the bald eagle and endangered species.

The refuge is renowned for its unique opportunities to see eagles, woodpeckers, and various waterfowl. Wildlife photographers particularly like the end of the Great Marsh Trail to encounter birds on the Great Marsh.

You also can join informative surveys and projects conducted by staff biologists about eagle management, great blue herons, wood ducks, neotropical migratory birds, and white-tailed deer.
