Morven Park and its partner-in-residence, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, offer year-round programs about the abundant natural habitats and wildlife that surround us. Come to one of the frequent guided hikes in the 350-acre ridge or come on your own to hike our ridge and flatland trails at any time. Attend a variety of workshops and learn how to restore a vernal pool, attract bats to your backyard, or identify trees in winter.
Visit Turkey Hill Farm to learn about how the techniques used by Gov. Davis – focusing on quality, healthy conditions for people and animals, soil science, and economic stability – paved the way for today’s emphasis on conservation and sustainability.
A newly restored tenant farmer house interprets the lives of the families who grew the feed crops and tended the livestock owned by the Davises. Raised beds provide an outdoor classroom for children and adults, and our turkey yard (the new home for “pardoned” White House turkeys) houses bronze turkeys that represent the 20,000-at-a-time that Gov. Davis raised here in the 1930s.
