About the Voting

The Bald Eagle represents the U.S.A. Virginia has the Cardinal, and now, Friends of Reston has launched a campaign to designate an official Reston bird in honor of Reston’s 50th anniversary this year. All are invited to vote for one of five bird candidates nominated by Reston Association naturalists. Write-in entries are also welcome.

In-person ballot voting will begin at the Walker Nature Center's Spring Festival on Saturday, May 3 from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Ballots will also be available inside the center's Nature House, which is open 9-5 on Mon., Wed.-Fri., 10-1 on Sat. and 1-4 on Sun. The nature center is located at 11450 Glade Drive.

Online voting will continue on the Friends of Reston's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/friendsofreston.

All voting will end on September 30, and the elected bird will be announced and celebrated at the Friends of Reston annual meeting in November. Pending sanction by Reston Association Board of Directors, this election will designate the Official Bird of Reston.
