15th Annual Butterfly Count - Saturday, August 6, 9:00 a.m.  Join the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy on its fifteenth Annual Butterfly Count, centered in the Waterford area.  No experience is necessary; novices will be teamed with experienced leaders in each segment of the count.  Come out and have fun while contributing to butterfly conservation.  Counters will visit various locations that include butterfly gardens, sanctuaries, roadside wildflower and grassy areas and parks. We typically count over 2,000 butterflies in this single day and can get up to 50 different species. Our count circle stretches from White’s Ferry in the east to the Appalachian Trail and the Blue Ridge Center for Environmental Stewardship in the west to Point of Rocks and south to Lincoln. Please bring a lunch and water. Binoculars are also helpful. There's a $3 fee per adult that we pass through to the North American Butterfly Association to help with their data compilation. This fee is waived for LWC members as a member benefit. For more information or to register and receive directions, please sign-up online,, or contact Nicole Hamilton at
