Hoffler Creek Wildife Preserve
Photo Tour   
The Hoffler Creek Wildlife Preserve, a 142-acre sanctuary for urban wildlife, contains four distinct habitats: a tidal creek and its expansive salt marsh, a riparian forest of pines and hardwoods, a meadow of native wildflowers and grasses, and a non-tidal brackish lake. The preserve provides food and cover for an unusually diverse population of wildlife, including deer, foxes, river otters, crabs, oysters, and over 200 species of birds. Interpretive trails winding through each of the habitats introduce visitors to the ecological, economic, and social value of the plants and animals living at the mouth of the historic James River and Chesapeake Bay.
Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10 am to 4 pm.
Fees: Free. Donations appreciated.
