The Rappahannock County Conservation Alliance (RCCA) is planning to finalize the process of dissolving itself as an organization and transfer its assets to the Piedmont Foundation this month. Those funds are designated for PEC’s Kresber Fund, which supports a variety of conservation efforts in Rappahannock County. A portion of the funds contributed by RCCA are prioritized for the Farmland Preservation Program.
RCCA was founded in 1999 and had the mission of ensuring “that Rappahannock County remains a scenic, rural community by promoting conservation easements and farmland preservation.” PEC is excited to have two RCCA board members, Jennifer Aldrich and Ralph Bates, now serving on the Krebser Fund board. Gary Light, one of RCCA’s founding board members, also serves on the Krebser Fund advisory board.
