Bluebell Festival

April 10 @ 10:00 am 4:00 pm

Please join the Prince William Conservation Alliance in welcoming spring, celebrating nature close to home and viewing the fabulous Virginia Bluebells that carpet the Cedar Run shoreline for nearly a mile.

Meet local organizations and people who are working to improve our community. With some of the best Northern Virginia naturalists leading tours and activities, we’re looking forward to a special day in an outstanding natural area. Family-friendly and free of charge.
