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 libraries throughout 2024: Lovettsville Library from January through February; Cascades Library March through April: Middleburg Library May through June: Purcellville Library July through August; Brambleton Library September through October: and Gum Springs November through December.
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. Scannable QR Codes are included that link to more information about how to become involved in related programs offered by Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy.
Join us for a panel discussion with the photographers, Nature Photography for Everyone, on January 18 at 7:00pm at Brambleton Library.
