 Dear Friend,

FOLAR is the only organization in the region dedicated to conserving and protecting the natural, cultural, and recreational resources along the Lower Appomattox River which flows on a continuous route through six central Virginia jurisdictions from Lake Chesdin, straddling Chesterfield and Dinwiddie Counties, through Petersburg, Colonial Heights, and Prince George County to the confluence with the James River at historic City Point, Hopewell. FOLAR has served the region as a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization since 2001. It is sponsored by the Crater Planning District Commission (CPDC).

Your membership contribution will help FOLAR as we work to improve parks, establish trails, access the river, and protect special places through our River Stewardship-Education Programs, Water Quality programs, and the construction of the Appomattox River Trail.

THANK YOU for your support!  See you at the river!
Ken Newman, Chair
