Listening to the Landscape: Wildlife Habitat at Ivy Creek - Cya On The Road

Welcome to a walk through Wildlife Habitatat the Ivy Creek Natural Area in Charlottesville, Virginia.Our thanks go the Virginia Department of Forestry and the Ivy Creek Foundation for their support of this project.My name is Dede and I have been guiding walks at Ivy Creek for decades now.I'd like to take a minute or two to review a few handy hints on how best to use this app and once we've done that, all you need to do is put in your ear buds, select start, stick your phone in your pocket, and start walking.Because you see, each of the stops is GPS triggered and should start automatically as you approach each interpretive site. This walk is a loop trail and measures about a mile. Walking leisurely and stopping once in awhile, this tour will take 30-40 minutes. Each stop also comes with images, that you can choose to look at or not. To access these, tap on the thumbnail image as a story plays, and then tap the image again the image which enables you to swipe through all the images.First let's be sure the settings on your phone are optimal.Be sure your phone volume is up and that the location setting is turned on. It's also best to download the tour using a wi-fi connection - so that you're using satellite connections and not cell towers. But you don't have to.When you're ready to go on the tour, press START. While you're on this page, just check to see that your ear speaker is on if you're using ear buds or a bluetooth and off if you want to hear it aloud. That setting is in the upper right hand menu (those 3 bars at the top right).The TOUR ITINERARY option at the bottom of the map allows you to manually take the tour at any time and to access the images and text..To walk it, select start and let's get on our way.... I'll meet you at the beginning of the paved trail. photo: Eastern Tiger Swallowtail by Derek Ramsey and licensed through GFDL 1.2
