The New River Land Trust: Saving Farmland, Forests, Open Spaces & Historic Places - While Educating the Next Generation of Conservationists

NRLT educates landowners and other stakeholders in Virginia about voluntarily donating conservation easements on their land. Our service area includes the counties of Bland, Carroll, Floyd, Giles, Grayson, Montgomery, Pulaski and Wythe, and the cities of Galax and Radford. We also work with partners, including local governments, on larger land policy issues. NRLT is accredited by the National Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Commission.

The NRLT also plays an important role in connecting local youth with the beautiful land around them. Our educational outreach focuses on four important areas: Conservation Connections in Cultural Heritage, Local Food and Farm to Table Initiatives, Water Quality and Habitat Diversity, and Nature Play and Environmental Appreciation. Our youth education outreach is designed to inspire students to value their natural surroundings and to foster responsibility and stewardship of farmland, forests, and watersheds. 
 
Our education projects provide area youth with opportunities like:
Learning and documenting histories of conserved land through music and art
Learning to use GPS technology in natural spaces
Tree identification and phenology 
Nature Play
Farm and garden tours
Nature hikes
Nature Play Space in Heritage Park in Blacksburg
 
All of our services - from landowner outreach to programs for local schools and youth groups - are provided free of charge. Your donation will help us expand our outreach efforts in the NRV, and ensure that families and students can participate in our programs regardless of economic background.  So please make a donation today to help us protect the next 50,000 acres, and to help educate the next generation of conservationists.
