The New River Land Trust works to protect farmland, forests, open spaces and historic places. We educate landowners and other stakeholders in Virginia about voluntarily donating conservation easements on their land, as well as other conservation programming. Our focus is on the eight county area at right - the New River region. We also work with partners, including local governments, on larger land policy issues. Since 2002, we have conserved more than 49,000 acres and over 25 miles of New River frontage. .
