News and Highlights

Through winter eyes. Everything changes in winter. Vegetation turns brown, birds that overwinter in our area make their brief appearance and familiar landscape takes on a different look. Take time for a hike in the woods and look for what's different. Bare trees give the woods a different feel. What you see on a walk in the rain is different from a walk over snow-covered ground. Listen to the crunch of the ground beneath your shoes. See what birds are in ponds, on the river and on tree branches. Enjoy nature's winter style.

If you'd like to join us for walk outdoors, look here to find one that suits you and your schedule.

We don't want to lose you! We need your membership support to build Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy for the future and raise our voice for wildlife. If you haven't yet renewed for 2017, please join or renew today! If you would like to mail in your membership payment, please send it to P.O. Box 1892, Leesburg, VA 20177. Thank you!
