For 86 years, the WARREN COUNTY CHAPTER has worked to protect our natural resources in Virginia's Northern Shenandoah Valley.
    
Warren County is our primary membership area, but we maintain a waiting list of applicants from adjoining counties.
    
Our MISSION is "...to strive for the purity of water, the clarity of air, and the wise stewardship of land and its resources; to know the beauty and understanding of nature and the value of wildlife, woodlands and open space; to the preservation of the heritage and to man's sharing in it."

VETERAN HUNTERS

During the weekend of April 9-11, the Chapter will host disabled veterans from No Person Left Behind for turkey hunting throughout the Shenandoah Valley.  
        
They're holding a Cook-Out/Wild Game Dinner at the Chapter on Sunday afternoon (April 10). Chapter members are welcome to join them, and perhaps bring a covered dish.
       
We're very proud to be able to offer the hospitality of our house and grounds, and the fellowship of our members to this most-deserving group.

LITTER PICK-UP SUNDAY!

   
The next LITTER PICK-UP is Sunday, April 10. Our goal is to do all of Browntown Road. The group will meet at the LDS/Mormon Church parking lot at 1:00 p.m.
   
Anti-litter chair Dennis Mosher leads an enthusiastic group of volunteers in picking up trash from Browntown Road and Happy Creek. Sometimes, not enough people show up. For the next pickup, let's turn out a crowd! The more people we have, the quicker it'll go. 
   
Call Dennis at (540) 635-3559 to volunteer for the next litter pickup. Or JUST SHOW UP!  
 Let's get lots of volunteers out to spread the work!

SHOOTERS
  
Please keep in mind that the Grounds Crew is working all over the park from about 8:00 a.m. to about 2:00 p.m. every Friday of the year.
  
Crew members may be working on the trails around the range.
  
Unless you absolutely have to shoot on Friday mornings, please schedule your range time outside these hours.
  
If you can't resist, please advise Gene Mathews that you will be shooting, so that he can schedule work away from the areas near the range.

BLAZE ORANGE
  
There may be shooting (firearms or archery) in the Park just about any time of the year, especially during hunting season.
  
Spring gobbler season starts in early April, so be especially careful!
  
VDGIF advises wearing blaze orange in the woods . . . in or out of hunting season. It's the law for hunters, and not bad advice for all of us whether hunting or not. Without it, you might just disappear!
   
Blaze orange is not just for hunters. Dress defensively. When you're in the woods, wear blaze orange to be safe and be seen.
