Please name your RCP or the reason you want to join the RCP Network

I am the Rappahannock-Rapidan Conservation Initiative Coordinator with The Piedmont Environmental Council in Virginia. We are the host of an emerging RCP called the Rappahannock-Rapidan Conservation Partnership. I would love to gain knowledge from folks who are also leading RCPs throughout the nation.


What has your RCP or organization done that others will be interested in learning?

We are still in the emerging and maturing phase -- unsure exactly what we can offer at this point but there's always something to learn about folks going through the process!


What are you interested in working on with other members of the RCP Network?

Yes, absolutely.

  • Welcome, Maggi! I heard about your new partnership from David Lillard who is now coordinating the Heart of Maryland Conservation Alliance. I would love to learn more about your partnership. If you're interested, your RCP could have a page here on this site so that others could learn more about what you all are doing. Such pages help with peer-peer learning. Now that you're a member, you could go to the navigation bar and click RCPs by Specialty to see what I'm talking about. Or, just click "RCPs," and then RCPs again to see the pages for individual RCPs. We can help make the page happen for you. Just let me know if you're interested. 

    I hope you are well.

    Best,

    Bill
