Since 2007, Virginia’s United Land Trusts has organized this annual conference to assist land-conservation professional and volunteers in the important work of saving Virginia’s extraordinary natural heritage, cultural resources, and open spaces.
For the first time in its 13-year history, the conference will be held in Richmond! We’re excited to showcase innovative projects and partnerships and to challenge ourselves to expand our scope of work. Thanks to our sponsors, all the field trips are free. Join us April 8–10 in the Capital of the Commonwealth. We’ll have the conference agenda posted soon!
