Protecting and connecting your favorite wild places


We work to protect and connect Virginia’s wild places. Along with our partners, alliances, and citizens like you, we press on in the fight against fracked gas pipelines in our region like the Mountain Valley Pipeline. We are also working to improve habitat connectivity for wildlife throughout Virginia and to ensure that all of our waterways are fully protected in accordance with the law.

Protect Virginia’s water quality and ensure that the laws that exist to protect it are properly applied. We also host trainings so you can learn to help monitor water quality.

► Fight fracking and other types of oil and gas infrastructure, like the Mountain Valley Pipeline. We also take citizens, media, students, and elected representatives on tours to see first-hand the impacts of this destructive industry.

► Maintain strong public education efforts through our press coverage, blog, social media, YouTube channel,  and podcast.  Our online events provide insight into our water quality and connectivity campaigns and continue to connect the public to the wild places we work to protect. We believe that the places you experience are the places you come to love and care about.

► Monitor all timber sales and projects in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests.
