If our 50+ year support of public lands has taught us anything, most prominent is that we benefit from the stewardship choices of previous generations. We were disappointed in the previous administration’s decision to shrink the footprint of our national monuments. We see this as a non-partisan issue and continue to advocate for the preservation of such lands which bring economic, recreational, environmental and social benefits to local communities.

Thanks to your support, we continue to advocate for protection of public lands in our own communities.  This action comes in the form of funding and volunteer efforts with conservation and environmental organizations such as the Friends of the Mountains-To-Sea Trail, Shenandoah National Park Trust, Conservation Trust of North Carolina, Lynnhaven River Now and many others, some mentioned here.
