programs that improve the quality of life and
sustainable use of natural resources, primarily in the
Shenandoah River Watershed, by providing volunteer
leadership, technical resources, and financial
Changes for RC&D in 2011: Federal
funding for the USDA/NRCS RC&D program was eliminated as of April 15,
2011. While NRCS remains a valuable RC&D partner, the Council has had to move out of its office at the USDA service center in Verona and NRCS staff no longer work with the Council on a day-to-day basis.
Shenandoah RC&D Council is not a government agency. It is a private, 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit
organization. Our Council is in a relatively strong financial position
and has many active projects with multi-year funding in place.
Shenandoah RC&D Council is being housed at the Valley Conservation Council (VCC) offices in Staunton and VCC staff are handling our day-to-day operations. Our mailing address remains PO Box 60, Verona VA 24482. If you have questions for the Council, please contact John Eckman, at Valley Conservation Council, at 540.886.3541.
