September kicks off Fall Stewardship Virginia campaign
Volunteers at our Virginia State Parks making a difference!
(Richmond, VA)— Stewardship Virginia, a statewide campaign to encourage and recognize voluntary activities with a tangible impact on Virginia’s natural resources, continues its ninth year with events across the state. The campaign features activities in the spring and fall. The fall portion runs through October 31.
“Stewardship Virginia gives us all an opportunity to make real contributions to our natural and historic resources. Recent events such as Hurricane Irene have created a tremendous need for volunteers,” said Governor Bob McDonnell. “Stewardship Virginia projects give volunteers the tools, guidance, and structure to continue to help improve and protect our valuable resources. I encourage all Virginians to get involved.”
