Virginia NRCS has been a leader in preserving the state’s wetlands and productive farmland for more than 20 years. Working with private landowners and land trust groups, our experienced team of easement specialists has contributed about 16,500 acres to the more than five million protected across the nation for improved soil health, water and air quality and wildlife habitat.

We’re celebrating this milestone by highlighting why easements are a win for landowners, partners and the environment. Check back each month to explore a different facet of this flexible conservation program. Want to keep up in real time? Follow Virginia NRCS on Twitter (@NRCS_VA).
