We reflect on 2012 and how your support is helping preserve the lands and waters on which Virginia depends.
Thanks to you, our 2012 highlights include embarking on our largest ever controlled burn on Warm Springs Mountain; recording a remarkable 10 breeding groups of red-cockaded woodpeckers - a milestone in our conservation efforts at Piney Grove; helping to establish the new Blackwater Sandhills Natural Area Preserve; and restoring 9,000 linear feet of Charlottesville's Meadow Creek as well as preserving 12 acres of wetlands and over 1.5 miles of the Rivanna Trail.
Of course, the holiday season also means reuniting family and friends and sharing traditions. Below you’ll find our suggestions for “greening” your long-standing rituals and starting some new traditions for a more sustainable celebration.
