Bluebells carpet the floodplainBring your family and friends to Merrimac Farm on Sunday, April 10, beginning at 10:00 am, to welcome spring and view the spectacular display of Virginia Bluebells that carpet the floodplain along Cedar Run for nearly a mile. In the words of one visitor, it's like walking through Oz.

We'll have naturalist-led tours to the Bluebells and Cedar Run, where you can stay as long as you'd like. Along the way we'll travel through a variety of habitats, talking about the birds, butterflies, frogs and other wildlife that lives at Merrimac Farm and in Northern Virginia.

A nature art show featuring local artists and photographers will be ongoing inside the Stone House Visitor Center. Outside on the front lawn, local groups will have fun nature activities for children of all ages.

Bring your kids, cameras and binoculars for the Annual Bluebell Festival at Merrimac Farm Wildlife Management Area! Appropriate attire for Merrimac Farm is always sturdy shoes and long pants, no matter the season. The Bluebells are in the floodplain wetlands, waterproof or water resistent shoes are a plus.
