Wildlife at Wintergreen Resort, VA

Wildlife in the Mountains

Wintergreen Resort is a wonderful place to live. Not only is the wild and untamed beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains awesome but the wildlife is fascinating. It is a Nature Lover’s paradise. One could watch numerous bird species from Hummingbirds to Golden Eagles, and animal species from Chipmonks to Raccoons, and Bobcats to Black Bears. Looking out of the window of a mountain home you may often see wild turkeys, deer and black bears wandering past if you are lucky.

Are there Wild Animals In Wintergreen?

There certainly are a lot of wild animals who live in mountain areas,  One of the tasks of the Wintergreen Nature Center is the observation and detailing of the wildlife seen in the area. Residents would often report on what animal they happened to come across on hikes and may even bring photographs, taken at a safe distance of course. Sightings of wildlife are usually timed and dated as to when and where the particular animal was seen. This list is usually on display at the Nature Center and updated daily. The Nature Center holds new resident orientation talks on many of these subjects. They introduce subjects such as Wintergreen wildlife along with the conservation of the land itself. The TWNF teaches ways to react and behave around these animals should hikers/walkers meet any wildlife on the trails. There are always knowledgable staff and volunteers willing to advise. The volunteer naturalists and professional staff of the The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen manage the 6,000 acres of wilderness to ensure Wintergreen remains a beautiful, popular place. And, it really is. Watch for the next post on Black Bears
