Northern Virginia Conservation Trust Pages

NVCT is an award winning charity that saves nearby nature by helping local governments and private landowners voluntarily preserve natural areas, trails, streams and parks. Founded in 1994, NVCT has preserved 5,370 acres in Northern Virginia. NVCT currently holds 93 conservation easements and owns 21 properties, including 70 acres protecting one of the largest Great Blue Heron nesting sites in the lower Potomac region. In 2008, NVCT was accredited by the Land Trust Alliance Accreditation Commission, one of only 39 accredited land trusts (out of 1700) in the country and the first land trust operating in either Virginia or the Washington, DC area to be so honored. In 2006-2007, NVCT was a Catalogue for Philanthropy selection for one of the best nonprofits in the Washington DC area.
