The New has been here since the very beginning. We’ll make sure it’s here for the rest of time.
Through our Accredited Land Trust Program, NRC has helped to protect nearly 10,000 acres of land and over 60 miles of rivers through land conservation, permanent sustainable management plans, and conservation easements. We have worked closely with the New River State Park to add over 1688 acres of land to the park to be permanently protected and accessible to the visitors and local community. One of our priorities is to ensure the land is both permanently protected and available to the community to enjoy. In 2022 alone, we secured a mountain, a park and a forest. These acquisitions help us protect areas in and around the New River by donating them to a government entity that will protect them in perpetuity.
