On Saturday, August 27, National Park Service Park Ranger Charles Wray will present the hour-long program Habitat Hunt at the Otter Creek Campground campfire circle, milepost 60.8 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The program will discuss three different types of habitats found in the Blue Ridge Mountains and how one organism obtains what it needs to survive from that habitat. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. Parking for visitors not registered to camp at the campground is available in the Otter Creek restaurant parking lot.
Night hike: Following each Saturday evening program at the Otter Creek Campground, weather permitting, visitors can join the park ranger for an hour of night time exploration. Bring a flashlight and wear sturdy shoes.
