A note on finding us:

Blackare’s entrance is located on Tucker Station road, just after the intersection with Versatile Road and across the street from a large housing development.  A long gravel road leads to parking, our homestead, and the nature preserve trails.  Please drive slowly: speed in excess of 15 mph destroys the road and may result in wildlife injury.
