The Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation has helped land owners in Virginia and Pennsylvania conserve over 45,000 acres of land, and owns and manages over 10,000 acres.
We develop and sustain our conservation models by managing habitat for endangered species, practicing wise forestry management, stream water mitigation and prescribed burns to control non-native growth, and other tools to preserve the integrity of the land.
We partner with local, state, and federal organizations, and work directly with landowners to share and advocate for conservation and land management best practices nationwide.
Giving back to those who have served and those who are currently serving our country has become central to our programming. We’re able to leverage our conservation models and outdoor activity infrastructure to provide veteran groups with access to the proven mental health benefits of spending time in the outdoors. Our staff and volunteers facilitate outdoor activities including clay shooting, fishing, archery, and axe throwing to name a few.
We partner with groups like Project Healing Waters, Wounded Warrior Project, and USO to identify participants for both small and large group events throughout the year. We are particularly proud of our annual American Heroes event held each fall that brings a group of 80+ participants together for a day of friendly competition and camaraderie.
