Rappahannock River Basin Commission Ecosystem Services Council moves forward

Rappahannock River Basin Commission staff, working with Conserv, and The Virginia Department of Forestry, have actively begun the process to create the Rappahannock River Basin Ecosystem Services Council (ESC). The Council, to consist of approximately 30 members, with a majority from business and industry interests working within the basin, will likely convene for a symposium and kick-off meeting on November 11.

The mission of the Council will be to oversee the design, construction, and monitoring of the Exchange. The World Resources Institute and The Pinchot Institute, creators (with many partners) of the Bay Bank have offered support and cooperation.
