The 2020 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards were announced on August 21, 2020 by webinar. The awards recognized the significant contributions of environmental and conservation leaders in four categories: sustainability, environmental project, land conservation, and implementation of the Virginia Outdoors Plan. The awards are given to businesses and industrial facilities, not-for-profit organizations, and government agencies. FOLAR is so proud to partner with the City staff and many donors who made the first phase of the Hopewell Riverwalk so successful. We continue to work together to extend the Riverwalk so that it connects to the Hopewell Marina and the developing 25-mile Appomattox River Trail.
