Building the Bond Between Healthy Lands and Waters

Making a difference in our watershed means building relationships with the individuals who live, work, and play throughout its lands and waters. Uniting communities under one mission is one of our biggest strengths at the Alliance. Through a wide variety of programs, we connect people to their local rivers and streams, where they become directly involved in local restoration efforts. It’s an approach that builds resiliency among our communities and landscapes to continually adapt to an ever-changing world.

When Jeanne Hoffman and Bobby Whitescarver met, the worlds of farmer and conservationists collided. Nestled in Virginia’s legendary Shenandoah Valley, the couple’s farm and marriage are representative of the symbiotic relationships that occur when we work with farmers to maintain productive agricultural lands while simultaneously protecting their local waterways.
