PEOPLE MAKE CONSERVATION POSSIBLE
THESE ARE THE PERSONAL STORIES BEHIND THIS GOOD WORK
The following stories provide a glimpse into the lives of the families, nonprofits and working farms who have protected their land with the Land Trust of Virginia. The stories are inspired by the diversity of lands, family motivations, and love of our rural way of life; there are many more stories like these, with over 200 conservation easements now completed.
MOST PROPERTIES ARE NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
All of the conserved properties remain in private ownership and are not open to the public unless specifically noted. The lands remain on the tax rolls and are managed by the landowners.
These conserved lands are critical farm and forest lands, wetlands and waterways, historic sites, wildlife habitat, scenic views, and places for people to connect with nature, close to home. They are often the landscapes that have made, and continue to make, Virginia the special place it is today.
