News and Highlights  

 

Join us at a fundraiser for Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy in the beautiful 1870's Amish barn at Sunset Hills Vineyard!

The evening will feature food, entertainment, wildlife ambassadors - including owls, as well as raffle drawings and a silent auction.

When: Saturday, March 25, 7-10 p.m. Where: 38295 Fremont Overlook Ln, Purcellville, VA

The $35 admission includes two drinks and food, plus there'll be music by local musician Pete Lapp. Get your tickets here.

For the birds: Help us grow our body of research on vultures and the strategies used to resolve human conflicts with these valuable scavengers. We need your assistance with online research as well as helping us interview vulture experts that we've identified. The solutions you help identify will advance efforts in support of people and wildlife living in harmony in Loudoun County. If interested, please contact us at info@loudounwildlife.org.

Be an Ambassador: The Audubon At Home (AAH) program supports people’s interest and efforts to become better stewards of the environment in their yards, neighborhoods, parks and other spaces. You can help by becoming an AAH Ambassador providing that support. Join us March 4 for an Ambassador orientation meeting, 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. at Watermark Woods in Hamilton. Email Ann Garvey at agarvey@loudounwildlife.org for more information.

Coming soon: Spring and the Native Plant Sale! It’s not too soon to start thinking about what you want to plant this spring. That way you will have your list ready for the Native Plant Sale April 1, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Morven Park. Three native plant nurseries (Nature By Design, Hill House Farm and Nursery and Watermark Woods) will have a huge selection of beautiful native plants for sale. To see which plants each nursery carries or to place an order ahead of time, visit the nurseries’ websites and check out their plant lists. We’ll be posting more information about the Sale soon, so please check back.
