About the Williamsburg Land Conservancy
Founded in 1990 as the Historic Rivers Land Conservancy, was the first private non-profit land trust in Virginia incorporated specifically to use the provisions of the Virginia Conservation Easement Act. In 1996 their name was changed and today, the Conservancy operates as a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, supported by annual membership dues, donations and grants. A Board of Directors, comprised of community leaders from throughout the Historic Triangle, governs the organization. Working committees help to carry out the programs and projects of the Conservancy.
The Conservancy is dedicated to protecting and preserving significant natural, scenic, agricultural and historic land in the Historic Triangle. Through a combination of land preservation tools, education and advocacy programs, and shaping public policy, the Conservancy strives to maintain the character and ambiance of this special place where we live and work. Today, 4,400 acres of protected land later, the Williamsburg Land Conservancy is proudly celebrating its 23rd year.
