Support of Youth Environmentalism
On March 26, 2019 the Lucketts Ruritans will be participating as a community partner in the first Loudoun Student Environmental Action Showcase (SEAS). This exciting event will be held at the Heritage High School, Leesburg from 5-8 pm. The Lucketts Ruritans will be presenting a display highlighting two 2019 environmental projects within the Lucketts community that will have both local and global impacts. The two projects are 1) Stormwater drain marking in Village Green and 2) Tree planting at JK Black Oak Wildlife Sanctuary in Lucketts to protect vernal pools.
The projects highlight the Lucketts Ruritans’ commitment to the environment by promoting awareness, responsibility, and conservation. Both projects have multiple partners, such as Loudoun Soil and Water Conservation District, Virginia Department of Forestry, Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, Lucketts Elementary School Rudy Jr. Club, and the Lucketts Girl Scout Troop 751. The Lucketts Ruritans support community engagement and the education of our youth through these hands-on experiences.
