The Nature Conservancy will be planting 2,000 native tree seedlings on 8 acres along the Rivanna River to eventually see the area grow into a woodland buffer to better protect this special river. This
“Forks of the Rivanna Tract,” currently owned by The Nature Conservancy,
sits at the junction of the Rivanna River and the North Fork of the Rivanna River. The Rivanna and its headwater rivers–the Moormans, the Mechums, the North Fork–are a key ecological targets for conservation action for The Nature Conservancy and other area conservation groups. This volunteer workday will complete a total of 155 acres being
restored and protected here, a great effort to reduce erosion and improve habitat in the Rivanna Headwaters area.
