Enhancing Urban Green Spaces for Wildlife: Free Loudoun County Lecture

In an effort to reconnect our community with the natural world and enhance local wildlife habitats, the Loudoun County Public Library is hosting a free lecture as part of the VCE Loudoun Master Gardener’s Series. The event, scheduled for Thursday, May 2, 2024, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m., will focus on the management of public green spaces such as parks, recreational areas, and residential neighborhoods to support diverse wildlife populations including birds, bats, and pollinators.

The speaker for this informative session is Marne A. Titchenell, the Extension Wildlife Program Director at Ohio State University. With a rich background in wildlife ecology and biology, Titchenell brings valuable insights into habitat management and the challenges and opportunities of managing nuisance wildlife species.
