Join Our Landowner Network
Virginia Working Landscapes wants to partner with local landowners to identify new field sites for our annual biodiversity surveys. We are interested in any grassland fields larger than ten (10) acres, and even sites that are relatively close to suburbs or towns.

If you are interested in partnering with VWL and letting us conduct biodiversity surveys on your property, please provide following property and contact information. This information helps VWL to understand the particular features of each property as well as to identify resources/programs that our landowner network would be interested in. Once we have your information, we will contact you to discuss next steps.

Please note that due to our limited capacity and the varying landscape parameters needed for each survey, we may not be able to survey every property but we will work with you to determine suitability of your property after you fill out the form. We thank you in advance for your willingness to participate in this process, and we greatly look forward to working collaboratively with you!
