Kim Hosen Memorial Hike

May 11 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Kim Hosen, founder of the Prince William Conservation Alliance, took great pride in reminding us that Prince William County encompassed a unique landscape and critical environmental resources that serve as a foundation for quality of life for wildlife and residents alike. It’s an environmental thread of life that connects the eastern to western ends of this great county. “It’s the only locality in the Chesapeake that spans tidal wetland to a mountain at Bull Run,” she would often say with delight. In her memory, join the PWCA on May 11 for a hike in the woods at Bull Run Natural Preserve Area and explore the beauty of this land that she held so dear.

Sonnie Cuffey III from the NAACP, Frank Washington from the Coalition to Save Historic Thoroughfare, and Joe Villari from the Virginia Outdoor Foundation will lead us through a journey of the headwaters of the Occoquan Reservoir, uncovering stories of history and ecology that make this place and Prince William County so extraordinary.

Hike Details:

The hike will traverse the red trail loop, covering approximately two miles round trip. It’s moderately difficult and passes beautiful and unique natural and cultural treasures. Please come prepared with sturdy shoes, comfortable attire suitable for woodland exploration, and sufficient water to keep hydrated. Feel free to bring along cameras and binoculars to capture the magic of the moment.

As a reminder, this is a pet-free event, so kindly leave your furry companions at home.

RSVP today to secure your spot! Space is limited.

Sponsored by PWCA (Prince William Conservation Alliance). With Support from NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), VOF (Virginia Outdoor Foundation), Coalition to Save Historic Thoroughfare
