Bringing together conservation leaders from across Virginia, the Environmental Assembly provides a forum for discussion on key environmental issues and an opportunity to strategize with like-minded individuals about the best ways to tackle threats to our natural environment. This annual conference is hosted by Virginia Conservation Network, a partnership of over 100 environmental organizations working together to create a powerful, diverse, highly-coordinated conservation movement in the Commonwealth.

The theme of this year’s Environmental Assembly is Conservation through Collaboration. Presentations and field trips will refer back to this overarching theme, highlighting instances where organizations, communities, businesses, and local/state elected officials worked together to make a positive impact on the environment.

The first day — Friday, September 22 — is open to paying Network Partners’ staff, board, and lead volunteers only and will include strategy planning sessions, as well as our annual Conservation Reception. The reception is open to the public and will feature remarks from Virginia’s local/state elected officials, as well as a silent art auction displaying conservation-inspired work by local artists. The second day — Saturday, September 23 — is open to the public and will include environmental presentations/panel discussions and field trips highlighting local environmental efforts.
