Eidolon ice cream social to be held June 22

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society (PVAS) is hosting an open house and ice cream social at Eidolon Nature Preserve on Saturday, June 22, from 1-4 p.m.

Join us at the beautiful Eidolon Nature Preserve for an open house and ice cream social. We will gather in the big parking lot before taking a leisurely walk to the stone house. Along the way, we will talk about the cultural and natural history of Eidolon, and highlight the things that make the mountain magical. Upon reaching the house, we will serve chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce.


Meet and greet in the big parking lot 1-2 p.m.

Interpretive walk to the stone house 2-3 p.m.

Ice Cream 3-4 p.m.

Take a chair and bug spray. The walk will be approximately 1/4 mile in length

with places of steep incline and unpaved footing. Sturdy footwear is recommended. Cell phone reception is poor on the mountain. Y ou may want printed directions, rather than rely on GPS. Look for the yellow Audubon sign and the sea foam green gate.

Note that since we are providing ice cream, it is especially important to register so that we know how much to provide and if you have any dietary restrictions.
