President’s Message to Volunteers:
For the past several years, Virginia has sought people and organizations to help stop the spread of invasive plants that are displacing native Virginia flora at an ever-growing rate. Virginia has searched for help to protect its irreplaceable waterways and the unique species that live within them. Like the rest of the nation, Virginia has struggled with the negative effects of urban expansion and pollution. Because of your pruning, planting, cleaning, and painting, Beautify Virginia has made a dramatic impact towards solving these problems. To cite just one example, your work to date is expected to result in the removal of more than 2,000 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere over the next 30 years.
There is much work still to be done. Our community volunteers truly are the foundation of Beautify Virginia’s success. We need your help now more than ever as we expand the reach and effectiveness of our efforts. Thank you for all that you have done and for all that you will do to improve Virginians’ lives and those of future generations.–William Neely, President
