Williamsburg Virginia Land Conservancy

The Williamsburg Land Conservancy’s Board of Directors recently voted to accept the donation of a conservation easement from the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation on 82 acres of land situated on Route 132. This parcel is located directly across from a 230-acre tract that the
conservancy already protects, thanks to an easement placed on the property by the foundation in 2006.

The permanent protection of these two parcels was a critical step to ensure that a major entryway into our region will forever remain the same. Take a ride along Route 132 between Route 60 Bypass Road and Route 143. What you will see is a landscape of some of Mother Nature’s finest work.
Tributaries to Queen’s Creek weave through the properties that are home to beautiful flora and fauna and wildlife. Wetlands, a mature deciduous forest, and historic sites all reside on this land. There are other landscapes within our  community that will remain intact to enrich our lives thanks to the generosity of landowners who made the decision to preserve the conservation values of their land.
There’s Greenswamp Farm, 167 acres along Centerville Road. Those amber waves of grain will never become mortar and brick. Then there’s the Williamsburg Winery, with 270 acres of land that will forever stay in agriculture vs a residential subdivision.

 Forge Road is host to protected parcels of land, and most recently the
190-acre easement placed on the River’s Bend at Uncle’s Neck property showcased how preservation and progress can work together, with the development of 35 residential lots and over 50% of the property being maintained for wildlife management .

We all benefit from a landowner’s decision to conserve land. So in this special season of giving and glad tidings, we should all say thank you to those who have had the vision and commitment to give this community a gift that will keep on giving into perpetuity.
Caren Schumacher, Executive Director
Williamsburg Land Conservancy
