Open space along Georgetown Pike conserved... 20 acres of open grassland in Loudoun County protected... 50 acres of farm and forest land in Prince William County saved.

Please consider making a gift today, and together we will continue to protect parcels of land of all sizes and descriptions throughout Northern Virginia. With your support, we can save in perpetuity the nearby nature that is so important to our communities . Remember, no gift is too small, and every gift counts. Our fiscal year ends June 30th, and the gifts we receive by that date will be recognized in our next annual report.

NVCT stewardship staff attended an Invasive Plant Management Workshop hosted by the National Park Service and D.C. Cooperative Weed Management Area. This is part of our effort to keep up with best management practices for invasive plant removal and ensure that NVCT's fee lands continue to provide scenic views for the community and native habitat for wildlife.
