The Yankauer Nature Preserve encompasses 107 acres along the Potomac River near Whiting’s Neck. The Preserve is characterized by mixed hardwoods and cedar glades. More open areas are covered with grasses, forbes and shrubs. There are 105 species of plants on the Preserve and bird life is abundant. The Preserve was named after the former owners, Dr. and Mrs. Alfred Yankauer, who donated the property to The Nature Conservancy in 1967. It is owned by TNC and managed by the Potomac Valley Audubon Society, the local steward. Originally agricultural land, the Preserve has been left to the skilled hand of nature to reclaim this wonderful spot. Walks through the Preserve during the spring are inspirational. The display of wildflowers is spectacular. With spring comes the migrating birds. Most species are migratory and their seasonal abundance is coded as follows:
