The Virginia Outdoors Foundation has awarded seven grants totaling $21,150 to conservation projects in six jurisdictions across the Appomattox River watershed that will reduce pollution and erosion in the river and its tributaries.

About half of the funding came from VOF’s Appomattox River Fund, which was established through the TERRA program in 2019 using mitigation funding from a bridge replacement project in Amelia County. The other half came from VOF’s general fund.

The projects included riparian buffer tree plantings, invasive species removal, a canoe/kayak launch, educational signage, and trash cleanup efforts.
