Sunday’s planting event at the future Sleeter Lake Park in Round Hill was an incredible success!
Sixty people, a mix of town residents and Loudoun Wildlife members, many of them kids and their parents, showed up to plant 410 pollinator-friendly native perennials, trees, and shrubs. It was wonderful to watch everyone enthusiastically putting the plants in and enjoying it while they were doing so.
This was a fantastic beginning to what we hope will be a long partnership between Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, the Town of Round Hill, and various other partners. Melissa Hynes, Round Hill’s Town Planner, is enthusiastic about keeping significant portions of the future Sleeter Lake Park natural and demonstrating to the public that wildlife-friendly habitat can be both attractive and beneficial.
