Mrs. Northam speaks
Drawing over 150 attendees this past weekend, The Piedmont Environmental Council held its annual meeting, where First Lady of Virginia Pamela Northam spoke about the importance of conserving lands.
“Land conservation has long been a priority of the commonwealth, and for good reason,” she said. “Conserving land is how we protect and honor Virginia's rich history, environment and scenic beauty, and we would not be nearly as effective at conserving lands without the tireless, courageous work of our land trusts partners across the state.”
The Warrenton-based PEC was founded in 1972 to promote and protect the Virginia’s Piedmont’s rural economy, natural resources, history and beauty.
