(Richmond, VA) VIRGINIA ENVIRONMENTAL ASSEMBLY

Date: October 11, 2019

Time: 8:00 am

Location: Virginia Union University, North Lombardy Street, Richmond, VA, USA

Friends of the Rappahannock is excited to join partners from across the state to attend this year’s Virginia Environmental Assembly.

This event brings together conservation leaders from across the Commonwealth to discuss our Common Agenda to protect Virginia’s natural resources. This annual conference is hosted by Virginia Conservation Network, the partnership of more than 100 Virginia environmental organizations.

Each year, this conference is hosted in a different region of the state to highlight Virginia’s distinct natural resources. This year we are excited to attend the conference to Richmond for the first time in nearly a decade to celebrate the 50th Anniversary.

The weekend will feature the work of local, state, and national organizations’ efforts to address climate change, advance environmental justice, clean up the Chesapeake Bay, expand outdoor recreation opportunities, and more.
