Conservation is a good investment

"The Eastern Shore is embedded in our hearts and in our souls. Fortunately, the heart and soul of our home remain remarkably intact and healthy, thanks to conservation," writes Lucius J. Kellam, III conservation easement donor and former board member in a recent op-ed for the Virginia Pilot. The op-ed also highlights a study by George Mason University's Center for Regional Analysis and Urban Analytics that  found conservation has a positive economic impact on the Eastern Shore.

Because of you
