The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation.
Learn about how we partner with National Audubon Society on the Christmas Bird Count.
The North American Butterfly Association (NABA) formed in 1992 is, by far, the largest group of people in North America (Canada, United States, and Mexico) interested in butterflies. NABA is a membership-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization working to increase public enjoyment and conservation of butterflies.
Loudoun Wildlife partners with NABA on the annual Butterfly Count.
The Virginia Bluebird Society (VBS) started in Northern Virginia in 1996 with 3 trails (41 boxes), and fledged 139 bluebirds as well as 22 other cavity nesters. Since 1996, VBS nest boxes have fledged over 70,000 bluebirds, chickadees, tree swallows, and house wrens! With our encouragement, all golf courses in the Northern Virginia Regional Park System are working to become certified under the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System. In conjunction with the North American Bluebird Society, we have established links with the Transcontinental Bluebird Trail (TBT). Our VBS sponsored links in the TBT are at Meadowlark Gardens in Vienna, Va., and the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton, Va. These model bluebird trails will educate the public on bluebirds and highlight the work of VBS.
We support VBS in setting up and monitoring nest box trails across the county.
In the end, we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we have been taught.
