Dominion Gives Half A Million Dollars In Grants Supporting Environmental Initiatives Across Virginia

RICHMOND, Va., July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Thirty-three organizations will share $500,000 in support of environmental stewardship initiatives, thanks to the Dominion Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Dominion Resources, parent company of Dominion Virginia Power.

"Preserving and protecting the environment is one of the most important responsibilities we're tasked with to ensure that future generations can enjoy all that Virginia has to offer."

These organizations will receive funding for programs supporting initiatives that protect and preserve natural habitats and open spaces, prevent pollution, make nature accessible, and educate the public about environmental stewardship. Recipients include:

Chesapeake Bay Exploration Lab, Virginia Beach: Friends of First Landing State Park will create an exploration lab to teach visitors about the health of the Chesapeake Bay through hands-on learning stations.
