Vulture Awareness

Vulture Roosting Area

There are some new signs in Town! Located near the intersection of Loudoun Street and Evening Star Drive and along the walking trail just to the north, these signs indicate the presence of a Black Vulture roosting area.

Federally protected Black Vultures are a vital part of nature’s clean-up crew and also help limit the spread of dangerous diseases and bacteria. However, waste from these vultures can be harmful to humans and pets, so the Town is advising people and pets to steer clear of the area and the small stream that runs through it. Additionally, any fish caught near this area should be released.
