The Northern Virginia Conservation Trust presents the Board of Supervisors with a check for $729,250 Monday. The money was granted to the trust by the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation to help pay for the 384-acre Hunter-Hacor assemblage along Pleasant Valley Road, between Virginia Run and Braddock Road. This land is now owned by the Fairfax County Park Authority, is a State Natural Area, and has a conservation easement on it held by the Trust. The county borrowed the money from the Sewer Fund to enable this purchase with the knowledge that they would be repaid with this forthcoming grant to the Trust.
