What do living shorelines, pollinator gardens, and green roofs have in common? They are all practices that can improve water quality, increase the value of your home, and can be partially paid for by the Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (VCAP).

Join CBF staff and our guest speaker, Blair Blanchette with the Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts, for an informative webinar to learn more about how you can take advantage of this incredible program. Blair oversees VCAP statewide, and will share which types of projects are eligible, how to apply, what cost-share is available, and how your individual projects can help improve the health of your local streams and ultimately the Chesapeake Bay.

If you have additional questions about the webinar, please reach out to Gabby Troutman, Virginia Grassroots Coordinator, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 804-258-1605.
