Shenandoah Valley Conservation Collaborative
The Alliance leads an exciting project with our local conservation partners to accelerate land and water conservation in our region.
Members of the collaborative include two land trusts (Valley Conservation Council and Potomac Conservancy), an historic preservation group (Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation), a watershed group (Friends of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River), and the Shenandoah County Easement Authority.
We all have a shared interest in conserving key land and water resources, and we are partnering to identify priorities in our region, including.
- Important agricultural soils
- Civil War battlefield lands
- Priority rivers and streams
Together, we are working with interested landowners and communities, and we are committed to bring the resources and expertise needed to secure these important protections.
