at the Moton Museum in Farmville, VA

The Upper & Middle James Riparian Consortium (Consortium) held its first general meeting of the year on Thursday, May 23rd, 2024 at the Moton Museum in Farmville, VA. It was a great event connecting with Consortium members, learning and sharing about riparian buffers in the Farmville area, and exploring the Moton Museum. There were a number of new and long-time Consortium partners that joined the event.
