Want to join me in supporting a good cause? This #GivingTuesday I'm raising money for Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. And on Giving Tuesday Nov 27, starting at 8AM, Facebook and PayPal will match a total of $7 Million in donations so your donation can go twice as far today. The matching funds may run out early so the earlier you donate the more likely your donation will be matched.

I've chosen Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you'll consider contributing. Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy works to educate the community, protect rapidly disappearing natural areas and restore habitat for native species in Loudoun County through classes, field trips, workshops, restoration projects and conservation advocacy. You can learn more about Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy at loudounwildlife.org Even a small donations of $5-$10 will add up today.

Thank you for your support.

Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy offers a variety of nature programs ranging from indoor classes and workshops to field trips like birding and hiking along local trails to county-wide counts.

Terrific!! Blue orchard bee (Osmia lingaria)

Pollinator. Mason. Jeweler. A female blue orchard bee is a multitasking master. She fashions exquisite nests out of mud and pollen that resemble pieces of jewelry. And in the process, she helps us grow nuts and fruits.

Tomorrow morning!!! This is a terrific opportunity to learn and ID butterflies. You don't need to be an expert on the topic of butterflies. Show up and have fun!! I can attest, I did it myself a couple of weeks ago and learned a lot. Brian and Allison Gallo are fabulous guides and extremely knowledgeable!! #loudounwildlife #butterflies #getoutloudoun

Did you miss the butterfly count? Or did you enjoy the butterfly count so much you want to go looking for more?

Then you are in luck! On Saturday, August 25th, at 9:30am, we'll gather at the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship (BRCES). For roughly 2 hours, we'll look for butterflies (and other critters that cross our path). Depending upon interest and weather and level of butterfly activity, we might take the show on road and look for butterflies elsewhere in Loudoun county after we have exhausted our 2 hours.

If you are interested, there is no sign up, just show up at BRCES (11661 Harpers Ferry Rd. Purcellville, VA 20132) - drive down the gravel road, veer left and slightly down the hill and park at the bottom. Wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen; bring water and butterfly guides if you have them.

Never stop squeaking up for yourself!

Want to hear the most painfully cute war-cry ever?

Pound for pound, the roar of the African rain frog is every bit as fearsome as that of the lion.
And you, like this bold little warrior, should remember to never stop squeaking up for yourself!

Special thanks to Dean Boshoff for the awesome footage.
