We work in 16 counties across northern Virginia's Piedmont, Blue Ridge, and Shenandoah Valley

VWL’s grassland bird research and collaboration with PEC has sparked a partnership with the American Bird Conservancy, which has led to the designation of VBGI’s 16-county region into a formally recognized conservation zone, or BirdScape. The aptly named Northern Virginia Piedmont and Shenandoah Valley BirdScape defines a focal area for partners to conserve declining bird populations and opens doors to building new and innovative collaborations for overcoming the challenges these birds face.
