News and Highlights
  • Martinis Matter!  On Saturday, March 14th, we have a first ever fundraising event planned to help raise funds for our programs. It's called Martinis Matter and is being hosted by River Creek Club in Leesburg. Drink, raffle ticket sales and silent auctions help raise donations for Loudoun Wildlife. Join us for this informal social event where you can have fun, win great prizes and try the evening’s signature martini, The Wild Thing! Attire is "business casual." Raffle tickets start at $5. For more details, visit Martinis Matter.
