The rural and forested places throughout Virginia have seen some of our nation’s most pivotal moments—from Revolutionary times, to the Civil War, to the present day.

As an example of our work in the Old Dominion State, we directly acquired nearly 5,000 acres in western Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains—a swatch of land dotted with Civil War relics that also preserves habitat for the threatened brook trout and protects the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay.
