Living in the Chesapeake Bay watershed means our ecological community extends far beyond Willowsford. The decisions we make on all of our Willowsford land have the potential to benefit – or harm – our local streams, waterways, Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay. We have the potential to benefit – or harm – our natural neighbors such as pollinators and wildlife.
Through collective effort we have the opportunity to integrate all of our Willowsford land, including our yards, into connected corridors of environmental stewardship.
A few collective steps include: Planting native plants and trees in your yard, replacing invasive species with native species, participate in Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s residential Wildlife Sanctuary Program, and by participating in an at home compost program. Composting your table-scraps reduces waste in the landfill and helps the Conservancy’s Farm build resilient soil. Compost your household scraps through Apex Organix, a veteran-owned business, and ask them to designate your share to the Conservancy.
