Our Mission

Chartered in 1998, the Blue Ridge Foothills Conservancy is a private, non-profit land trust working primarily in Madison and Greene counties in central Virginia. Our mission is to conserve, through voluntary land protection, the agricultural, scenic, natural, historic and recreational resources that define the rural character of our communities.

What We Do

Land stewardship can take many forms -
* Farmland and open space protection
* Conservation site planning assistance
* Natural, historic and recreational 
                  resource inventories
* Educational programs on land 
Land stewardship and a respect for private property rights are deeply rooted traditions of the people of the Blue Ridge Foothills. Consistent with these traditions, the Blue Ridge Foothills Conservancy works directly with landowners to identify voluntary land protection options that meet each landowner's financial needs and also ensure that future generations can enjoy the special qualities of their land.
Land Stewardship

Land protection tools include -
* Donation of conservation easements
* Bequests of land
