Partnership Creates Opportunity to Save Threatened Species
The New River Land Trust has joined forces with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and The Conservation Fund to protect an important property in the New River region. The property has been home to a family farm for generations, but it’s also home to three endangered or threatened species: the Bog Turtle, federally listed as threatened; a butterfly, Mitchell’s Satyr, federally and state listed as endangered; and the Appalachian snaketail dragonfly, which is listed as significantly rare in Virginia.
