We Did It!!!

We are proud to announce the expansion of our Potomac Creek Heronry by 113 acres! This land purchase was in part made possible by grants from the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation and the Community Foundation for the Rappahannock River Region. But a major portion of this half-a-million-dollar purchase was funded by your individual contributions, so we wanted to take this time to say thank you.

Thank you for believing in this project. 

Thank you for caring about your local environment.

Most importantly, thank you for donating these past few months.

Your support has blown us away and in making this a reality, you have made our region healthier and more vibrant for all time.
