Prospect Hall seeks to maintain premier wildlife habitats by catering to upland birds, a variety of other song birds, as well as, birds that migrate through the Shenandoah Valley and winter the season here. We just underwent the largest WHIP (Wildlife Habitat Improvement Program) program in the Eastern Panhandle, modifying approximately 100 acres to better suit upland game birds by developing a variety of natural grass habitats. Habitats improved so much that a Barn Owl was spotted on the property for the first time in decades and we accommodate one of the six-known nests in the entire state. This year was the first year that we hatched out wild and natural pheasant peeps on the property.

This is rolling limestone countryside, open and cropped with fields of corn, wheat and beans. Here and there are isolated coveys of wild bobwhite, but, alas, quail are not prevalent enough for the prudent gunner to hunt. It is in this neck of the woods, on Opequon Creek, that Prospect Hall has established one of the finest preserves in the Mid-Atlantic States...Read More
