Field Schedule

Logistics: Unless inclement weather is forecast or an update indicates otherwise, you can assume that we will be out. If for some reason you want to double-check, you can try to reach us at 703.764.4830. Bring work gloves, if you have them, and a bottle of drinking water. Unless otherwise noted, we will provide tools. Wear sturdy shoes to our field events. Please do not wear sandals or open-toed shoes! And if you are coming out to one of our field sites you're better off wearing long, light-weight pants, rather than shorts. (But shorts are fine at the nursery.) You do not need to register before an event, unless otherwise noted. Students: If you need hours for a class requirement, a staff member can sign a verification form if you bring one, but we do not provide these forms ourselves.

Where: View the Preserve's location on Google Maps. The Marie Butler Leven Preserve is in McLean, Virginia. The street address is 1501 Kirby Road. If you’re coming from the Beltway, exit on Route 66 East; from 66, take the first exit, to Leesburg Pike (Route 7); turn left on Leesburg Pike, then almost immediately after the underpass, turn right onto Idylwood Road. Just stay on Idylwood, which becomes Kirby Road after the intersection with Great Falls Street. Stay on Kirby; once you have passed the stop sign at Chesterbrook Road, the Preserve is about half a mile up on the right.
