Drum roll please. The recent purchase of an easement on 148+acres of farmland at the northern end of the county [see story below] helped theAuthority move the needle on its holdings to a new high of 5,333 acres. Impressive on its own merits, this achievement gains added luster when noting:
- Authority now holds almost 20% of ALL acreage permanently protected in Clarke County
- It took only 10 years to achieve this milestone
The Virginia Outdoors Foundation, which is the largest land conservation organization in the US, took 47 years to acquire its 15,000+ acres in the county.
