HELP PROTECT VIRGINIA’S PIEDMONT – A MESSAGE FROM ROBERT DUVALL

The PEC was incredibly fortunate to partner with actor Robert Duvall to create this video. This is a must-watch!


CULTIVATING COMMUNITY AT ROUNDABOUT MEADOWS

Come help us start our second season at our Community Farm! Learn more about the farm and volunteer opportunities at https://www.pecva.org/farm. Even though it’s still chilly outside, we and our partners at Loudoun Hunger Relief are getting excited for spring at the Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows and growing food for those in need! Seeding for the upcoming growing season will kick off in February. Volunteers are the backbone of our efforts at the Community Farm, so please considering spending a few hours helping out! We’re thrilled with the progress that the farm has made in its first year of operations. Come out to Roundabout Meadows to help make 2020 even more successful!


RESTORING CONNECTIONS AT WHITEOAK CANYON

We teamed up with Shenandoah National Park and Trout Unlimited to remove the old crossing at the Whiteoak Canyon trailhead and replace it with a brand new bridge. Damaged by years of flooding, the crossing was no longer safe to drive across, blocked wildlife like brook trout, Virginia’s state freshwater fish, from accessing their natural habitat in the Park, and degraded water quality downstream. Now hikers will once again be able to drive across Cedar Run to the upper parking lot while fish and other aquatic species can swim freely in the revitalized stream!  

Funding for this project was provided by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (VDGIF), Orvis, The Nimick Forbesway Foundation, and the Ohrstrom Foundation.
