ODLC - Old Dominion Land Conservancy

All forms of life need food and water. We get our food from the land and our clean water from run offs, springs, streams, and rivers. Life cannot be sustained without access to uncontaminated land and water. Our small farms, gardens, parks, forests, trails, wetlands, grasslands, and yes...large commercial farms, local, state, and federal forests and parks are all part of the ecosystems that most people simply take for granted.

Our goals are to to protect the land and water, and provide for future generations.
