Conservation Lobby Day

Virginia Conservation Network organizes Conservation Lobby Day each year to ensure a strong conservation voice is heard early in the legislative session. Volunteer advocates are invited to join professional staff of Network Partners as we meet with state legislators and encourage them to support environmental policy advancements. All updates about this annual event will be posted to

In preparation for Conservation Lobby Day, Virginia Conservation Network will be hosting a webinar during which experts will brief participants on top line items in the 2018 Virginia General Assembly session. We encourage everyone who registers for Conservation Lobby Day to tune into this webinar to get up to speed on environmental bills and issues. The date for the webinar is still being determined.

Coffee, light breakfast, and lunch will be served at the event. Attendees will also receive a copy of the 2018 Environmental Briefing Book.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the renovations taking place in the General Assembly Building, legislator meetings will take place in the Pocahontas Building. This building is much smaller than the General Assembly Building; therefore, we expect limited access compared to past years. We ask that those who register for Conservation Lobby Day do so understanding that meetings may be tricky to navigate due to these circumstances out of Virginia Conservation Network’s control.
