This Race is for the Birds, which raises funds for the Potomac Valley Audubon Society, is excited to be exploring the trails at the historic Wild Goose Farm (located across the street from the National Conservation Training Center). NCTC has been the site for our Race for the Birds for the past 14 years. Through no fault of their own, they are no longer able to host the event.

This Race is for the Birds is grateful for the years of support from NCTC as well as the new partnership with Wild Goose Farm.  We know you will love the new venue!
