How We Work

Everything in nature is connected. Water, soil, trees, air, wildlife, people. Change one part and, like dropping a stone into a glassy pond, effects ripple outward.  There is much to be gained when we work with nature rather than paddling against the tide of natural forces.

  • FORESTS AND WOODLANDS. We work to ensure that Virginia’s forests continue to harbor wildlife, support recreation and forestry, and clean the air we breathe and the water we drink.
  • RIVERS AND BAYS. From the Chesapeake Bay to the Clinch River, we seek to secure clean water, abundant wildlife and sustainable fisheries for the benefit of people and nature.
  • OCEANS AND COASTS. We work with partners to revolutionize ocean management and to protect and sustain marine life, coastal communities and a bountiful ocean for generations to come.
  • CLIMATE. Protecting and restoring healthy natural systems can enable habitats, wildlife and human communities to withstand climate change and rising seas.

Explore how we're advancing the protection and restoration of Virginia now and for future generations.
