Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy
People and Wildlife Living in Harmony
Since Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s foundation in 1995, this region has seen a great transformation. From a largely rural area, Loudoun County has grown and changed to a county that encompasses not only hills, farmland and open areas but also increasing suburban development as the population grows.
Change brings with it a greater responsibility to preserve and protect important elements of what makes this area so attractive – the habitat and the wildlife that live among and beside us. That is the role of Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy.
This year marks our 25th anniversary. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are hosting a virtual 25th Anniversary Celebration on Friday, October 23, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm, with featured speakers, entertainment, and a trip down memory lane. You can help us celebrate and participate by submitting a video! We are accepting videos from: Individuals […]
