Since so much of our time lately has been lived online the Historic Virginia Land Conservancy (HVLC) is sponsoring a photo contest in the hopes you will come to be an “offliner” and check out what’s outside.

The HVLC is in the business of protecting the scenic views and open space that makes our community a special place. The weather is cooler, the colors are turning bright and heck, nature is beautiful! So, go take a hike, literally, and bring your smartphone to capture the beauty of the natural world in our community.
