(This amendment provides an additional $0.5 million GF in each year for the Natural Heritage Program as part of the ongoing base budget in support of active Natural Area Preserve (NAP) and Natural Heritage Resources conservation across Virginia and the Commonwealth's 63 Natural Area Preserves as recommended by the Board of Conservation as part of an overall rebenchmark of $2.9 million. Since 2002, the Natural Area Preserve System has grown by 35 natural areas, 110 tracts of land and 37,231 acres while total staffing for the program has shrunk from 48 to 43 FTEs.)
