The Tri-Rivers Conservation Foundation donated a 40 acre land parcel to Louisa County Monday during the supervisors meeting. The donation is part of a $144,000 match guaranteed by the foundation to help secure a $576,000 National Scenic Byways grant from the Federal Highway Administration. The money will be used by the Louisa County Conservation Board to begin site development of the Louisa Interpretive Center (LIC). The LIC will adjoin the Langwood Environmental Center near Grandview. According to TRCF President Al Bohling, the center will serve as a focal point for more than 16,000 acres of public land that makes up the Louisa Resource Area; and will help illustrate the unique and important natural and cultural features within the confluences of the Iowa, Cedar and Mississippi rivers.
