Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy is fortunate to have some wonderful photographers who are truly wild about Loudoun among its members. Seven of them have come together to present an exhibit of 31 photographs of Loudoun County’s wild places and their inhabitants. “Wild About Loudoun!” includes stunning photographs of some of our rarely seen residents of Loudoun including the elusive Eastern Spadefoots that were found last year at JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary near Lucketts. A pair of young Barred Owls, an up-close look at a fairy shrimp and a plucky-looking Carolina Wren are just a few of the engaging photos.
“Wild About Loudoun!” will be on exhibit at the Rust Library from September 2nd through October 30th; at the Law Library, Courthouse, Leesburg from November through December; and at the Lovettsville Library from January through February. Suggestions for books for young readers on topics related to the photographs will be available. Accompanying the exhibit is a book containing interesting facts about the subjects of the photos with comments by the photographers.
