One of the Forum’s primary objectives is to provide support to our partner organizations. This includes awarding small grants to non profit partners, convening our annual meeting to encourage networking and expand understanding of environmental issues facing the Shenandoah watershed, and bringing together conservation partners for quarterly board meetings.
