    Meet Your Stream – Loudoun County, VA
    NF_Beaverdam_Creek
    Sunday, March 12, 2 – 4:00 p.m., Rust Library. Healthy streams and waterways are vital to the sustainment and growth of Loudoun County’s native flora and fauna. The stream running through your neighborhood is vitally important to ensuring that our larger tributaries such as the Potomac River and Goose Creek remain healthy to sustain a diverse wildlife habitat. Join Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy for an informative presentation where you will learn to identify healthy streams and how you can positively impact stream quality. You will hear how citizen scientists monitor and assess quality by collecting and counting aquatic insects found in our streams. You will see live samples of aquatic insects collected from a nearby steam. You will see how restoring natural riparian buffers can transform a stream into a healthy, vital waterway. And, if you are really interested in helping Loudoun’s wildlife, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a stream monitoring team in your neighborhood — so you can begin making a difference.
