MissionThe Mission is to enrich the lives of the community and visitors with a rural-tourism experience. RVF aims to foster appreciation and preservation of its natural, historical, ecological, and agricultural resources, and to encourage recreation and a healthy lifestyle in the Rockfish Valley.
What We DoThe Rockfish Valley Foundation (RVF) is based in Nelson County near Nellysford.
The facilities at RVF include trails along the Rockfish River, the unique Spruce Creek Park off Glenthorne Loop at 1368 Rockfish Valley Highway, Nellysford with its Children's Nature Trail, Natural History Center and Museum, the Native Plant Walk, and plenty of picnic tables.
RVF sponsors several community-wide events during the year. These events this year have been virtual, but after restrictions are lifted, we will return with our usual events. Although the Natural History Center and Museum is closed due to COVID-19 Pandemic, when restrictions are lifted we will re-open the Center on weekends for visitors
