VCU receives large land donation
A conservation-minded group has donated about 150 acres along the James River to Virginia Commonwealth University to help expand the school's biological field station.
VCU officials said in a release Monday that the Meadowville Trust's gift of the eastern Chesterfield County tract will increase the size of the 343-acre Rice Center by nearly half.
The Meadowville Tract contains critical bald-eagle nesting areas and also is a habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals.
