Climate Resilience

The Blue Ridge Mountains in Shenandoah National Park are amongst the oldest mountains in North America. They harbor relics of early settlements in this region, support endangered plants and wildlife, and provide clean drinking water to millions of people living downstream. Shenandoah National Park boasts incredible biological diversity, with a rich array of native plants and animals that call our park home. Our projects over the years have been incredibly diverse, from invasive species control, native habitat restoration and climate change initiatives, to endangered species protection and erosion control.
