Save Crow’s Nest:

  • is a non-partisan education and advocacy group. 
  • is committed to preserving Stafford County’s 4000-acre Crow’s Nest peninsula as a natural area park with public access for low-impact recreational and educational activities
  • is opposed to any development in any part of Crow’s Nest.
  • is an all-volunteer organization.  None of our members receive any payment for their efforts on behalf of the group.  As a result, 100% of donations made to “Save Crow’s Nest” go toward paying material costs such as copying flyers, printing lawn signs, and maintaining this web site.  (Please consider making a donation by sending a check, made out to “Save Crow’s Nest,” to: Save Crow’s Nest, PO Box 9223,  Fredericksburg, VA 22403.)
  • has diverse members including life-long residents and recent transplants.  Our volunteers include conservationists, hikers, birdwatchers, boaters, anglers, hunters, and regular citizens who recognize the importance of limiting development and protecting our natural resources.
  • was organized in mid-January 2004 when negotiations to purchase and preserve Crow’s Nest broke down and it appeared that destructive development was a real possibility.  Our advocacy efforts played a central role in stopping that development and helping to jump-start preservation efforts that have been going on ever since.  A portion of the peninsula has been saved as the Crow’s Nest Natural Area Preserve–a major achievement–but a significant part remains threatened by development.  Therefore, we continue to educate and advocate on behalf of saving Crow’s Nest.
