NATIVE & INVASIVE PLANTS September 28th

CONSERVATION EASEMENTS October 26th

CHESAPEAKE BAY ACT November 30th

Did you know that most of the Tri-Cities Region is located in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed?  That location means the Chesapeake Bay Act and regulations apply to how we manage and develop our land.  Join FOLAR and DEQ to learn more about these regulations and how to protect the Appomattox River and the Chesapeake Bay.
