Historically, the rolling fields in Manassas National Battlefield Park were used for agricultural purposes. Since many grassland birds in Virginia are on the decline, one of the park's goals is to promote better quality habitat for grassland birds, while still maintaining the agricultural heritage of the park. To this end, we are maintaining grass and shrub lands using a combination of agricultural (hay) leases and mowing by our maintenance staff.
Did You Know?
Our approximately 1,500 acres of managed grasslands are maintained by seasonal cutting. Cutting allows the grasses to fulfill the various habitat needs of the many important bird species we have in the park.
