Hughlett Point Natural Area Preserve

Located on Virginia’s Northern Neck, Hughlett Point Natural Area Preserve is situated on a small peninsula on the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The This state-owned preserve contains tidal and non-tidal wetlands, an exemplary undeveloped sandy shoreline and low dunes, and maritime forest communities. It supports the federally threatened northeastern beach tiger beetle (Cicindela dorsalis dorsalis) and, in some years, rare nesting shorebirds. Hughlett Point is an important wintering area for migrating waterfowl and songbirds, and provides habitat for bald eagles, osprey and northern harriers.
