A Natural Oasis in Suburban Gaithersburg

Few people realize that despite all the urban growth in middle Montgomery County that a wide range of wildlife has adapted to our presence and live among us. Other less adaptable species have lost most of their habitats and have barely managed to maintain a presence in our area. The Chapter Grounds of the Lois Green-Sligo Chapter have become a haven to all of these creatures. The following is an incomplete list of species that have been seen on the property. Please let us know if you see something new!
