Virginia General Assembly Preview

December 2 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

In preparation for Virginia’s 2018 General Assembly session, Virginia Conservation Network and its Network partners are convening for a day-long preview of what’s in store for our natural landscapes and resources. Volunteers, board members, and staff of partner organizations — as well as those interested in getting more involved in Virginia’s conservation community — are invited to learn about priority environmental topics and discuss our collective approach to advancing policy in the upcoming legislative session.

Traditionally, this annual event has taken place only in Richmond, VA. In order to better accommodate the vast majority of Virginians who live outside of the region, we invite you to join Friends of the Rappahannock and the University of Mary Washington Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences in Fredericksburg, Virginia as we learn about the different conservation and environmental policy issues we expect to see in the 2018 legislative agenda.

The event will be held in University Center Colonnade meeting rooms. University Center is located on College Avenue next to Seabock Hall and at the cross street of Parcell Street.

Coffee and light breakfast will be served. All attendees will also receive a copy of the 2018 Environmental Briefing Book, which displays the breadth of conservation issues our community is prioritizing in the coming year. Additionally, attendees at all locations will have the opportunity to ask questions at the conclusion of each panel.
