Board of Directors Votes to Create Wildlife Habitat Cooperative for Quail, Box Turtle, and Pollinators

box turtlequail4lilium_superbum_lgAfter completion of a fall landowner scoping meeting, business concept plan, and robust staff and Board consideration, the Center’s Board of Director’s approved the creation of a new major program for 2016 – The Rapidan Wildlife Habitat Cooperative (RWHC).  The vision of the Cooperative is a 20 sq. mile area with interconnected quail, pollinator, and box turtle habitat sufficient for breeding populations of those species that reside in the area. The mission of the Cooperative is to restore local wildlife habitat through landowner partnerships that provide multiple returns on investment. Like a traditional agricultural producer cooperative but focused not on crop services, the RWHC will provide members with a wide variety of habitat establishment and maintenance services at competitive prices.
