Free Conservation workshop for Loudoun residents – learn to collaborate with hoas

Get inspired on Nov 17th @ 12pm: Make your neighborhood a better home for butterflies and birds!

Butterflies will be back next spring – will your community be ready for them?
Take 30 min. to learn about a free program from the Audubon Naturalist Society (ANS) called “Greening Your Neighborhood”. Made specifically for Loudoun County HOAs and Condo Associations, learn how ANS can help you, residents, and Board members, enhance your community to be even more ecologically sustainable. This FREE program can give you the resources and skills you need to plan and lead a conservation project. ANS will be a resource for you as you complete a project in your community before June 2022 and drive real change right at home.
