    Seneca CBC also takes place on 18 December. The count circle includes sections of northern Fairfax and Loudoun Counties. I am leader for sector 14 (Great Falls-northern Reston) of the circle, and we welcome new and returning participants. You can count at home, watching a feeder, or walk the trails. I can also connect you with leaders elsewhere in the Seneca count circle.
