From seagrass meadows of the Virginia Coast Reserve, to Warm Springs Mountain among the Central Appalachians, we are well into an era of restoration across Virginia. Thank you for your continued support.
Thanks to your support for The Nature Conservancy, we are restoring nearly two miles of Meadow Creek in the heart of the City of Charlottesville. The project provides access to a beautiful healthy stream, expands public park land, and reduces pollution in the waters that flow through the Rivanna River and into the Chesapeake Bay.
Thank you for supporting our work along the Virginia Coast Reserve. With your help, we restored both oyster reefs and eelgrass habitats in the coastal bays that will improve ecosystem health, support marine life, and provide resiliency to anticipated climate change.
Thank you for helping us expand Piney Grove Preserve’s endangered red-cockaded woodpecker population to 10 breeding groups.
Thank you for 10 years of success on Warm Springs Mountain. We’ve taken a major land acquisition and transformed it into a model of working with partners to restore Appalachian pine and oak forests at an ecological meaningful scale!
Thanks to you, we’re making a difference in southeastern Virginia. In the Great Dismal Swamp we’re helping to restore water levels, reducing wildfire risks and related air-quality concerns. Along the Blackwater River, we protected 2,500 acres of ancient cypress and other forest.
Thank you for helping us equip, train and activate some of the best volunteers nature could ever ask for. They are working alongside our trained conservation professionals to restore landscapes across the state.
Thanks to your support we’re improving the way we care for the blue part of our planet. This includes working to rebuild healthy fish populations and surfacing science and maps to reveal solutions that balance ocean uses with conservation needs.
Thank you for your support of The Nature Conservancy in Virginia. Your contributions allow us to protect the lands and waters upon which all life depends.
We reflect on 2012 and how your support is helping preserve the lands and waters on which Virginia depends.
