The U.S. Department of Agriculture has chosen the Shenandoah Valley to receive additional money for the conservation. The program will encourage tourism and create jobs by protecting and developing the Valley's natural resources. Twenty-eight areas applied for the funding and only seven were selected.

Del. Steve Landes (25th District -R) says, "This benefits the farm, the economy, our agriculture base, but more importantly, other landowners in the area. All of us who live in the area. It benefits the entire economy and also the environment."

Landesk says this is the first time the Valley has ever been chosen for the program.
