On Thursday April 26, Take Your Child to Work Day, Phil Daley, representing Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, conducted three nature walks around and thru AOL’s Loudoun campus.
There were sightings of several species of birds, two green herons, and several muskrats. Phil identified numerous trees and plants native to our area.
AOL has developed their storm water holding pond and its surrounding area into a very attractive habitat for local wildlife with walking paths for employees.
A butterfly garden has been planted and the benefits should be noticed this summer.
Although AOL entertained over 300 children Thursday more than fifty parents and children took advantage of the walks.
Before leaving the campus a number of AOL employees accompanied by their children were seen back at the area for a personal and individual experience.
