A conservation nonprofit that has helped to protect the Shenandoah Valley's agricultural, cultural, and natural resources for a quarter-century.

Founded in 1990, Valley Conservation Council (VCC) is a land trust supported by hundreds of member households throughout the region and beyond. VCC is one of several dozen private organizations and state and federal agencies working together to conserve rural heritage, protect our waters, and save resources for the future in Virginia.

Our organization is dedicated to protecting the agricultural, natural, and cultural resources of the greater Shenandoah Valley region in Virginia through private action and public planning. We believe that to protect the Valley’s natural resources we must provide solutions that foster the continued health of the region’s economy and quality of life, while solving problems presented by the area’s rapid population growth and sprawling suburban development patterns.
