The Enviva Forest Conservation Fund, established by Enviva Holdings, LP (“Enviva”) and administered by the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, is assisting with the preservation and conservation programs that span more than 5,000 acres of environmentally sensitive bottomland and wetland forests in North Carolina and Virginia.

The 2019 Enviva Forest Conservation Fund matching-fund grant recipients are:

“We so appreciate the funding made available through the Enviva Forest Conservation Fund to conserve important habitats like this one in our state, as well as all of our partners in this project.”

Brett Christina Glymph, Executive Director of the Virginia Outdoors Foundation

The Virginia Outdoors Foundation

A permanent conservation easement will be placed on two adjacent tracts of Bottomland Hardwood Forests in Southampton County, Virginia. The parcels are rated as “very high” for forest conservation by the Virginia Department of Forestry. The protection of these acres will provide water quality benefits for the Nottoway River and two additional threatened and endangered waters (Racoon Creek & Three Creek). Several state-listed mussel species and nine rare vascular plant species will benefit from this conservation initiative.

N.C. Coastal Land Trust, in partnership with N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and Marine Corps Air Station

This project will conserve a diversity of wetland and upland habitats in a growing conservation corridor through a military, state, and non-profit partnership. Referred to as the Salters Creek Landing project, more than 5,490 acres of land and over 11 miles of waterfront will be protected in Carteret County, North Carolina through a fee simple acquisition.

Three Rivers Land Trust

A total of 500 high priority acres within the Barnes Creek/Poison Fork Watershed will be protected via an easement. The acreage falls within the Greater Uwharrie region of the North Carolina Piedmont, which is considered a priority landscape by the conservation community. Most of the property is bottomland hardwood forest adjacent to the Uwharrie National Forest.

Tar River Land Conservancy

A fee simple purchase will protect approximately 200 acres of which 81 acres are considered flood plain forest in Granville County, North Carolina. The property is located on the Tar River, a waterway that has historically been impacted by East Coast hurricanes. This acquisition will help protect habitat for 15 at-risk species documented in the Tar River near the purchased tract.
