A note from CRLC about their current projects:
CRLC is working on several exciting projects in our region. Firstly, we are purchasing 900± acre Malvern Hill Farm in Varina to protect it from development and preserve the integrity of the historic property that includes ruins of a 17th century manor house as well as the site of the bloody conflict that resulted in over 8,000 casualties during the Battle of Malvern Hill. The property is adjacent to 2 miles of the Virginia Capital Trail, and CRLC’s project includes public access initiatives such as a canoe/kayak launch into Turkey Island Creek. This project is a collaboration of many partners include the National Park Service, VA Department of Historic Resources, VA Department of Conservation & Recreation, James River Association, Chesapeake Conservancy, Civil War Trust, and others.
In addition to Malvern Hill, CRLC is actively working to increase the acreage of lands immediately adjacent to the James River. Our goal with this initiative is to bring awareness to these landowners about the interconnectedness of the health of the river to run off from their properties. Land conservation is a key strategy identified in the Capital Region Collaborative, Envision the James, Chesapeake Bay Program, and Regional Rivers Plan.
