Energy​ ​Extraction​ ​and​ ​Infrastructure​ – We continue to fight fracking and other types of oil and gas drilling in Virginia’s national forests. We take citizens, media, students and elected representatives on tours to see first-hand the impacts of this destructive industry.  As part of this campaign, we are committed to stopping the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and Mountain Valley Pipelines.

Virginia​ ​Water​ ​Protection – Wild Virginia hosts Water Quality Monitoring trainings with Trout Unlimited to teach volunteers how to monitor water quality and protect our public lands from fracking and fracking infrastructure.

Outings and Education – Wild Virginia organizes and leads interpretive hikes. We believe that the places you experience are the places you come to love and care about. Our Wild and Scenic Film Festivals inspire citizens to action through our Wild and Scenic Film Festivals in Charlottesville, Staunton and Harrisonburg each year.

Forest Service​ ​Project​ ​Monitoring
– Wild Virginia monitors all timber sales and other proposed projects in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests.

Habitat​ ​Connectivity – Wild Virginia is working on initiatives to improve habitat connectivity across Virginia.  Because roads are a major agent of habitat fragmentation, we helped found the Virginia Safe Wildlife Corridor Collaborative.   This Collaborative is working to protect  both people and wildlife by reducing animal-vehicle conflicts and improving safe wildlife passage.

Forests​ ​and​ ​Climate – Wild Virginia works to illuminate the role of Virginia’s national forests as a carbon sink, an ability increases with age. These forests are both threatened by climate change and play an important role as part of a climate solution. We have joined forces with partner organizations to form a national movement dedicated to protecting our standing forests through the Stand4Forests Platform.

A grassroots membership, non-profit organization dedicated to preserving wild forest ecosystems in Virginia's National Forests through education and advocacy
