30 Sep 2017 9:00 AM • Mason Neck State Park Visitor Center



Come join us for the Friends of Mason Neck State Park's Owl Moon evening on Saturday, September 23!  It’s an opportunity to come face to face with three owls (a Barn Owl, a Barred Owl and a Great Horned Owl) as the Secret Garden: Birds and Bees presents  "A Year in the Life of an Owl." Bring your camera for great close-up shots. We'll have light refreshments at 7:00 PM and hold a very brief annual meeting, then start the program at 7:30. We'll plan for the event to be held in the Visitor Center, but if more than 30 people register, we’ll be in a large, lighted tent near the Visitor Center so be sure to dress for the weather. 

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS EVENT, WHICH IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.  However, please RSVP if you are coming so we know how many people to plan for and we can put up the tent if we need it.  You can RSVP here: 


         TO MASON NECK STATE PARK!          





Just a few short weeks ago, we told you about our efforts to bring the “Spirit of America” bald eagle sculpture to Mason Neck State Park. Your response was overwhelming. Thanks to your generous donations, we have already met our fundraising goal!  We cannot thank you enough for this tremendous show of support.

The artist, Mike Curtis is currently working on this piece and we expect to have it installed in the fall. We’ll keep you up to date on the progress and will let you know as soon as we have a date for the unveiling ceremony.

Thanks to you, thousands of people will enjoy this magnificent eagle for many years to come. And yes, we do think you’re amazing!

Mason Neck State Park 

Mason Neck State Park is located on the Mason Neck peninsula in southeastern Fairfax County, Virginia. The Park's wetlands, forest, water, ponds, and fields are home to a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, osprey, geese, ducks, swans, and other birds living on or near the Potomac River, Kane's Creek, and Belmont Bay. 

The Park has hiking trails, three miles of paved multi-use trails, a large picnic area, a playground, a car-top canoe and kayak launch, and a visitor center. Canoe, kayak, and bicycle rentals are available.

The Friends of Mason Neck State Park 
work to conserve, enhance, and interpret the Park's natural, educational, recreational, cultural and historic resources. We assist the Park Staff in implementing its programs and activities, and we sponsor picnics, hikes, kayak trips, show-and-tell, volunteer activities, and other special events.
