Environmental Resources for Community Members of the Virginia Piedmont

Land conservation and environmental education are the first steps in preserving our natural resources.

PFHCF was founded in 2021 to foster the conservation of Virginia Piedmont’s open spaces and rural landscapes through supporting the sustainability of equestrian and sporting hound activities. 

We strive to enhance awareness and appreciation of the long-term care needed to protect our landscapes and preserve the diverse wildlife habitats that nourish the native plants and animals that share our Virginia countryside

Our commitment to preserving our historic territory drives our educational programming and citizen engagement throughout the Virginia Piedmont region.

We are community-based, making an impact by through conservation education, assisting landowners with best land management practices, offering financial support for conservation easements, and providing  youth scholarships with internship opportunities at the PFH stables and kennels.
