the Brock Center (circle with the yellow B below) can be tricky.
There is no parking at the building however you can drive up and
drop passengers off. HCAP parking is nearby. The
main lot is a few hundred feet away at the pump station however
if this lot is full you need to parallel park along Marlin Bay
Drive which is the blue line marked B to A. The center is
the small circle with yellow B in it. If you park on
Marlin Bay you can walk the soft-surface path (red-line) through
the woods to the center.
Field Trip is the weekend of May, 16, 17 & 18 to the Blue Ridge
Parkway/Warbler Road just outside of Bedford, VA. If you
