Virginia Ecosystem Services Initiative Prepares for Summer Bidding Program

Last week, the Virginia Department of Forestry, working with Conserv, hosted the first F2F Landowner Workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to provide information necessary for landowners in the South Fork Rivanna Reservoir Watershed to submit forest establishment project “bids”. ¬†Bidding opens July 12 and closes July 30. Bids will be accepted through the¬†F2F website. The purpose of the 3 year program is to establish and evaluate a model process for the purchase of water quality and quantity ecosystem services in a water supply reservoir watershed.

A second Landowner Workshop will be held from 7-9 p.m. on July 8 at VDOF Headquarters in Charlottesville.

Information and presentations from the Workshop can be found at the F2F website.
