The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is asking local poets to submit poems that will be displayed as part of its annual Wildflower Festival, which will be held this year on Saturday, April 17.

The festival is held at the Society's Yankauer Nature Preserve north of Shepherdstown.

Again, events will include a "poetry walk" with original poems on spring themes posted all along the preserve's Kingfisher trail. The poetry walk has become a very popular feature of the festival!

Those who wish to submit poems are encouraged to do so by email by sending them to pvnaturewriters@gmail.com. Poems may also be dropped off at the Four Seasons Bookstore in Shepherdstown or submitted by regular mail to Poetry Walk, c/o PVAS, PO Box 578, Shepherdstown, WV 25443.

The deadline for submissions is April 10.

For more information contact PVAS at 304-676-3397 or pvasmail@aol.com.
