Rappahannock League for Environmental Protection

Rappahannock League for Environmental Protection (RLEP) promotes environmental public education, advocates for good community planning, and defends the quality of Rappahannock County environment.

In all its activities, RLEP is guided by a sense of values rooted in the preservation of Rappahannock County's priceless natural resources, farm land, scenic beauty, and rural character. We support policies and actions that protect and enhance these gifts, and oppose those that threaten to destroy or degrade them.

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 and stink bugs 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.

During #GiveLocalPiedmont only, RLEP offers membership at just $10! We encourage you to join on May 2, 2017, to help preserve the rural and natural landscapes of Rappahannock County, Virginia for a lifetime!

As a member of RLEP you can join us for free events and seminars, like our Solar System program on Saturday, May 27! SAVE THE DATE! Greg Redfern, NASA Solar System Ambassador, is coming to the Castleton Festival Theatre on Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend, to give an amazing and colorful presentation about the Universe and our Milky Way Galaxy! This will be followed by an outdoor view of our Night Sky with telescopes and lasers pointers. This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. RSVP today to kaye@kohlerrealtors.com
