Surveys of Ware Creek Wildlife Management Area
Sunday April 29 and Sunday May 6, 2018

The VHS Conservation Committee is planning to survey Ware Creek Wildlife Management Area
(WCWMA) on Sunday April 29 and Sunday May 6 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM (Sunday dates are
necessary to avoid potential safety conflicts with the spring turkey hunting season). WCWMA is
located on the York River in the community of Barhamsville near Williamsburg in New Kent
County. WCWMA contains more than 2600 acres of mixed hardwood and pine forest, extensive
wetlands and open fields. WCWMA has not previously been surveyed by VHS. It is of interest
to the Conservative Committee as 13 amphibian and reptile species with VDGIF tiered
conservation status have been documented for New Kent County, several of which might be
present in WCWMA.

These surveys are VHS members-only events, with each member entitled to invite one
additional guest participant. Participants can attend on either or both survey dates. If you plan to
attend please provide your (and your guest) contact details on the registration form that follows
for the date(s) you plan to attend.

For the surveys, please come prepared for a harsh woodland and wetland environment. Suitable
boots (waterproof if possible), insect and tick repellant, lunch or snacks and plenty of water are
strongly recommended.

Directions:
Take I-64 to Exit 227 VA-30 Toano/Williamsburg. Turn left (if traveling from
Richmond) or right (if traveling from Newport News) onto Old Stage Road (VA-30). After 1.5
miles turn right onto Holly Forks Road, which becomes Tabernacle Road after 0.9 miles.
Continue on Tabernacle Road for 1.9 miles and turn left onto Triangle Road. After 0.5 miles turn
right onto Holly Fork Rd and proceed 0.3 miles to Millers Road. Turn left on Millers Road and
continue 0.4 miles to the management area.
