These easements span seven separate plots, consisting of active farms, forests, historic structures, and wetlands.
“OLDC takes great pride in the work we were able to accomplish across Northern Virginia in 2015,” said Henry Stribling, Executive Director of Old Dominion Land Conservancy. “It is an honor to work with Virginia’s wonderful families and organizations to help preserve our beautiful countryside. We deeply appreciate the generosity and support of our neighbors, without whom none of this would be possible.”

In Fauquier County, the ODLC was able to help local resident Mr. Charles Strother preserve his farm, which has been in his family for over three generations.
