We are Visual and Communication Art students at Eastern Mennonite University who love and pursue photography. The three of us have been involved in the Conservation Photography course at EMU. During this course, our group has been raising awareness about the impact of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline being proposed by the power company Dominion. In addition to many other field trips and adventures, we have been able to volunteer at the Nature’s Best Photography awards, hike the Georgia Camp Trail on Shenandoah Mountain, and visit a private land owner’s farm during this course.
“A proposed $5 billion pipeline that would deliver natural gas to the Southeast is finding pockets of opposition along its planned path in West Virginia and Virginia, where it would carve through two national forests…”
“The 550-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline is also seeing resistance in remote high-elevation sections of Virginia amid concerns it would traverse an environmentally sensitive landscape. Some landowners also object to plans for the pipeline to dissect their property.” -News Leader
