Please contact us if your organization would like to be involved in the initiative.

National Geographic Maps
National Geographic Maps

National Geographic Maps was established as a division of the National Geographic Society in 1915 and is responsible for illustrating the world around us through the art and science of mapmaking. We publish wall maps, outdoor recreation maps, travel maps, digital maps, atlases and globes that inspire people to care about and explore their world.

James River Association
James River Association

The mission of the James River Association is to be guardian of the James River. We provide a voice for the river and take action to promote conservation and responsible stewardship of its natural resources. We achieve these goals through four core programs: Watershed Restoration; Education and Outreach; River Advocacy; and our Riverkeeper program.

Chesapeake Conservancy
Chesapeake Conservancy

The Chesapeake Conservancy is dedicated to ensuring conservation, stewardship and access of the Chesapeake Bay, its lands and rivers. The Conservancy was created out of a merger between the Friends of the John Smith Chesapeake Trail and Friends of Chesapeake Gateways.
