Dear Supporter,

Although this past year has kept us physically apart, conservation and our collaborative partnerships have continued to work throughout, producing some amazing results. This is why I’m so excited to invite you to our second virtual Quarterly Keynote on June 24 that The Piedmont Environmental Council is co-hosting with our friends at the Shenandoah National Park Trust and the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute’s Virginia Working Landscapes

Learn more about conservation practices, scientific research happening in the Piedmont, and how there are many elements of conservation that work together to create better places for us all (people, plants, and animals) to enjoy.
