Sailor’s Creek Battlefield Historical State Park will host the third annual Butterflies on the Battlefield Pollinator and Nature Festival Saturday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the visitor center. The Pollinator and Nature Festival focuses on educating guests about the important role pollinators play in their ecosystem and how to create a pollinator habitat.

This year’s festival features educational booths including the Virginia Master Naturalists and the Margaret Watson Bird Club, a pollinator garden, a wildflower scavenger hunt, as well as children’s crafts & activities. While you are here, hike some of our beautiful trails, bring a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of our picnic areas, and cool down with a sweat treat from a local ice cream vendor who will be on hand throughout the event.

This event is free and pets are welcome, but must be on a least at all times. For additional information, call the park at (804) 561-7510 or email sailorscreek@ dcr.virginia.gov.

In the event of severe weather, the event may be canceled.
