We’re protecting and preserving our river and watershed for decades to come. 10,000 acres of land, 60 miles of shoreline — and counting.

Every acre we can secure. Every mile we can protect. When it comes to preserving our irreplaceable natural resources, the New River Conservancy is a committed and collaborative advocate for conservation. Our accreditation with the Land Trust Accreditation Commission — awarded to land trusts that meet the highest national standards for excellence and conservation permanence — allows us to purchase land and donate it back to the public for all to enjoy. Since the 1990s, we have worked closely with the New River State Park to add over 1688 acres of land to the park, among other projects.
