Conservation's Political Voice

Sunday, June 5, as part of our 2016 Legislative Recognition Event “An Evening Social at Midwood Farm,” Virginia LCV will hold a live auction to benefit our Political Action Committee (PAC) which will in turn help secure a conservation majority at the State Capitol.  Sound conservation policy can only exist when sound conservationists hold office.  Virginians deserve elected officials who are dedicated to the preservation and protection of our Commonwealth’s natural resources. Read below for more information about this year’s auction offerings! We look forward to seeing you all June 5 in The Plains!
