They were using a new methodology that relied on knowing the precise locations of rare plants, animals and ecological communities, as well their rarity levels and threats. Thus was born the Virginia Natural Heritage Program with what is now a widely used approach to conservation.

Today, the program operates as a division of the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation.
