Northern Virginia Conservation Trust’s Annual
Peggy Stevens Award

Peggy Stevens was NVCT's executive director from 2013 to 2017 and led the organization through a challenging time in our history. As a true champion for saving nearby nature in the Northern Virginia region, Peggy was passionate, confident, and competent in everything she did while always smiling and making people laugh with her wonderful sense of humor. All who knew her were blessed to have been able to call her a colleague, mentor, friend, and leader.


In commemoration of Peggy's incredible contributions to the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, we hereby name the annual Peggy Stevens award after the organization's former executive director whose energy, resourcefulness and passion for land conservation helped make NVCT what it is today.


The Stevens Award recognizes an NVCT conservation landowner whose enthusiasm, focus, and exemplary management of their land is a model in the community and a benefit to the living things and people who rely on it. With pride and purpose, the individual has shown what it truly means to love nature through action and devotion.
