Virginia’s Return on Investment in Land Conservation

The Trust for Public Land conducted an economic analysis of the return on Virginia’s investment in land conservation through a variety of state programs that funded land acquisition statewide, and found that every public $1 invested in land conservation returned $4 in natural goods and services to the commonwealth. In addition, land conservation funded by Virginia supports key industries that depend on the availability of high-quality protected land and water.

This report summarizes the key findings and the benefits of open space investments by the Commonwealth of Virginia.
