Northern Virginia Conservation Trust (NVCT) is a nonprofit land trust that strengthens and forever conserves the land, water and scenic character of Northern Virginia. Since its founding in 1994, NVCT has protected more than 7,000 acres in urban and rural places in its service area of more than 2.9 million residents. Today Northern Virginia's lands are threatened by extreme development pressures and climate change, making conservation work crucial to sustaining livable and healthy communities. Land conservation provides natural places for children to play, scenic views, and green spaces that help improve mental health and well-being. To learn more and to get involved, visit nvct.org.
