Have your say about the future of Loudoun. The “Envision Loudoun” workshops in December are aimed at gathering your ideas that will be considered for the New Comprehensive Plan, which will serve as Loudoun County government’s guiding document for land use and development for the foreseeable future. Make time to attend one of the sessions: The Western Loudoun Workshop will be held Monday, December 5, at 7 p.m. at Woodgrove High School, 36811 Allder School Rd., Purcellville. A second workshop will be held on Thursday, December 8, at 7 p.m. at the Cascades Senior Center, 21060 Whitfield Place, Sterling. Find out more about the “Envision Loudoun” workshops here.

Become our Butterfly Count Coordinator. The volunteer who fills this position is the chief organizer of the Annual Butterfly Count, which provides insights into the health of wildlife habitat in Loudoun County. This person works with count leaders and participants, compiling and reporting data about butterfly diversity and numbers to the North American Butterfly Association. While an interest in butterflies is a plus, requirements for this position include attention to detail, experience with Excel spreadsheets, good communication and organization skills, and a warm/welcoming demeanor. Mentoring will be provided throughout the first year. For additional information, please contact Kelly Senser, volunteer coordination and outreach specialist, at ksenser@loudounwildlife.org.
