Working in 16 counties across Virginia’s northern 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.

VGBI’s service area includes Albemarle, Augusta, Clarke, Culpeper, Fauquier, Frederick, Greene, Loudoun, Madison, Orange, Page, Prince William, Rappahannock, Rockingham, Shenandoah and Warren counties.

VGBI is proud to be an active partner within three Regional Conservation Partnerships
