Longleaf Pine Restoration
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Partners for Fish and Wildlife (PFW) Program is participating in a long-term federal, state, and non-profit effort to restore longleaf pine savannah and its dependent species to a portion of what was once 1 million acres of longleaf pine in Virginia. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and its partners are currently restoring longleaf pine habitat potentially suitable for red-cockaded woodpecker (federally listed as endangered). More

North Fork Roanoke River
The proposed North Fork Roanoke River habitat restoration project located in Montgomery County, Virginia consists of habitat restoration along two sections of the North Fork Roanoke River: 1,900 feet at RM 17.1 and 1,100 feetĀ at RM 18.0. These reaches are experiencing instability from various sources including: lack of riparian buffers; a low water crossing; a failing rock wall along the river; an instream bridge pier; an eroding culvert pipe; and livestock access to waterways. Restoration will include riverbank stabilization throughout the reaches. More

Chilhowie Town Park
The Town of Chilhowie is partnering with the PFW Program to complete habitat restoration along a 3,200-foot reach of the Middle Fork Holston River at the Chilhowie Town Park in Chilhowie, Virginia. More

Dunford Park
The Dunford Park Urban BMP Streambank Stabilization and Riparian Enhancement Project is located in Dunford Park in the Town of Tazewell, Virginia. The site is a multi-use town park facility including picnic pavilion, cross-fit outdoor course, youth fishing waterway, and soccer field. The South Fork Clinch River is experiencing streambank erosion and increased siltation throughout this reach due to a lack of woody vegetation along streambanks. More

Indian Creek RM 0.45
The Indian Creek RM 0.45 Riparian Habitat Restoration Project is located adjacent to and just upstream of the Town Park in Cedar Bluff, Tazewell County, Virginia. The site is a residential lawn and adjacent fallow field with intermittent mature trees along the banks. The section along the creek is regularly maintained and mowed and is dominated by turf grass with very little woody and herbaceous native riparian vegetation to provide an adequate riparian buffer.
