About Us

Originally formed in 2001 as International Partners in Education, Inc. we changed our name in 2008 to the Old Dominion Land Conservancy, Inc. to more appropriately reflect our focus on the preservation of Virginia's beautiful, historic, countryside and valuable water resources. 

Founded to protect land and water resources for their natural, scenic, recreational, historic, and agricultural values, the Old Dominion Land Conservancy, Inc. (ODLC) also seeks to educate the public on why land conservancy is so very important and so easily overlooked. 

Under the leadership and guidance of ODLC, many properties with a total of nearly 4,690 acres have been successfully designated and preserved as in land conservancy.

ODLC accepts land donations, but also tailors conservation easements to meet the specific needs and conservation purposes of each landowner and our organization. ODLC is a Virginia nonprofit corporation and qualifies as a federally recognized public charity under IRS Section 501 (c) (3).
