(This amendment provides $560,000 each year for the Natural Heritage Program which protects important, rare or endangered natural habitats throughout the Commonwealth. The system currently contains 38 Natural Area Preserves and 35,500 acres. These funds will provide for site security, maintenance of parking areas, roads, trails, signage and other needs of the system. The funds will also enable the Department of Conservation and Recreation to staff the Virginia Invasive Species Council, established by the 2003 General Assembly to coordinate the Commonwealth's response to invasive species.)
