2020 Grant Recipients

The Enviva Forest Conservation Fund, established by 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 2020 Enviva Forest Conservation Fund matching-fund grant recipients are:

“While we know that strong forest markets are critical to keeping forests healthy, we also recognize there are places of high conservation value that need to be preserved and protected. We continue to be impressed by the quality of projects put forth by these organizations, and know that they will support long-term conservation, enhancement of biological diversity, and ecosystem sustainability within the coastal communities of North Carolina and Virginia.”

Three Creeks – Virginia Outdoor Foundation (VOF)

This project will support two separate contiguous tracts in Southampton County, Virginia totaling 1,139 acres and more than 43,000 feet of stream corridor. The properties, which will be held in conservation easement by VOF, are adjacent to “Three Creeks,” a tributary of the Nottoway River in southeastern Virginia.

Cape Fear Bottomlands – North Carolina Coastal Land Trust (NCCLT)

This project involves the purchase of two contiguous wetland tracts totaling 1,679 acres in Brunswick and New Hanover Counties, North Carolina. Once purchased, NCCLT will offer them to the state of North Carolina to be managed by the Wildlife Resource Commission as game lands, open to the public.

The purchase of 504 acres which lie in the ancestral territory of the indigenous Nansemond people of the Nansemond River, a 20-mile long tributary of the James River, will support multiple conservation plans in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
