The Shenandoah Valley Network works to maintain healthy and productive rural landscapes and communities, to protect and restore natural resources, and to strengthen and sustain our region’s agricultural economy. We pursue this mission by supporting strong local citizens’ groups and promoting good local land use and transportation plans, compatible economic development strategies, and effective land protection programs. We serve community groups in six Virginia counties: Frederick, Warren, Shenandoah, Page, Rockingham and Augusta.
We provide leadership and advocate on specific regional issues that threaten the natural and historic resources, agricultural economy and traditional communities in the northern Shenandoah Valley.
The Network operates as a resource center for local citizens groups. Our staff and experts across the state provide hands-on technical assistance to address key issues and build the capacity of county-level community groups.
