(This amendment provides additional general fund support and staffing for the management of 52 natural areas currently owned by the Department of Conservation and Recreation. These resources will permit the agency to open several of its largest preserves, most notably one in Virginia Beach, to the public as well as better address management challenges such as poaching, invasive species, illegal activity, dumping, and theft. The funding will also provide staffing and support for the management of the Crow's Nest property, located in Stafford County, which the agency will complete the purchase of this April. )
