Biodiversity Task Force
Most of us live in Rappahannock County because it offers gorgeous scenery and a quiet, rural way of life. But we also love the county because it gives us the opportunity to be in close touch with nature. While poison ivy and hordes of ladybugs may be the price we pay, we willingly do so to see bald eagles fishing the local rivers, bears eating berries along the trails we hike, and trillium and dogwood blooming in our woodlands in the spring. We enjoy the fact that nature is literally, abundantly at our door.
While we enjoy our native species in Rappahannock, just what do we know about them? Which are native to the county? Which species are plentiful and which are threatened with extinction? What can we do to maintain species diversity in Rappahannock? How should we deal with invading species that are not native? RLEP has formed the Biodiversity Task Force to explore these questions.
