About ODLC

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

ODLC accepts land donations, but also tailors conservation easements to meet the specific needs and conservation purposes of each landowner and ODLC. We have been hard at our task for the past 15 years.
