Merger of Two Watershed Environmental Groups

Two watershed groups focusing on stream health and water quality in the Rivanna River basin of central Virginia committed to consolidating into a single organization after having shared a significant history of partnership with complementary missions and work efforts. The Rivanna Conservation Alliance was established as the result of the merger of the two organizations.  A grant from The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration funded a portion of the one-time costs for the collaboration.
